Donating shares and other securities (Including stocks, mutual funds, RRSPs/RRIFs)
Want to make a difference and minimize your income tax? Transferring a gift of securities (publicly traded stocks, bonds and mutual funds) is a great way to do both. When you transfer a donation of securities directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, you are making a difference in the fight against cancer and eliminating any capital gains tax on appreciated securities. It’s important to be aware that the capital gains tax exemption does not apply if you sell the securities first and then donate the cash proceeds.
Whether you are considering a gift of securities now or as part of your legacy, we are here to help make the process easy. Please contact Judy Zhu at 604-215-5206 or Judy.Zhu@bc.cancer.ca to talk about your gift.
Ready to get started? Simply fill out our Securities Donation Form and then give it to your broker to complete the transaction.
Your donation helps fund Canada’s best cancer research, as well as critical prevention and support programs to give people with cancer the information and help they need at a time when they need it most.
