Annual Gifts – Gifts of Securities

Give today without directly affecting your pocketbook and avoid paying any capital gains tax. Gifts of shares or publicly listed securities to a registered charity are exempt from capital gains tax, with the tax receipt reflecting the full market value of the gift. The resulting tax credit far outweighs the tax incurred from the initial cost of purchasing the securities. Publicly traded securities include shares, bonds, warrants and options traded on any prescribed stock exchange as well as mutual fund units.
