Donating a gift of securities, stocks or bonds is simple and can have great tax-saving advantages for you while making a real difference to the charitable work of the Canadian Medical Foundation.
When you donate a gift of stocks, bonds, or other publicly traded securities to CMF you DO NOT need to pay tax on capital gains and you receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the securities you have donated.
You may also wish to consider converting your gift into a Donor Advised Fund, one of today’s fastest growing means of long-term charitable giving because they enable donors to realize immediate benefits while providing ongoing, long-term support to the causes that matter most to them.
