Donating shares and other securities (Including stocks, shares, RRSPs)
Transferring a gift of securities is one of the most tax smart ways for many donors to make a gift. You can eliminate the capital gains tax on securities that have risen in value by transferring a donation of securities directly to the Society. Note that under current tax rules the securities you donate will be exempt from capital gains tax only if you transfer them in kind. The capital gains tax exemption does not apply if you sell the securities first and then donate the cash proceeds.
It is quite easy. Simply call Altaf Vasanji at 604-675-7313 to speak about donating securities to support life-saving research, cancer support programs, and/ or high impact cancer prevention initiatives. You may be able to make a larger donation at a lower cost and make a meaningful difference.
