Donating Securities and Mutual Funds
A donation of securities or mutual fund shares is the most efficient way to give charitably. Why? Because the Canada Revenue Agency does not apply capital gains tax on donations of publicly traded securities. Capital gains are the increase in the value of your securities over the price you paid at purchase. But when you donate your securities directly to charities, those capital gains aren’t subject to tax. This means the charity receives a larger gift, and you benefit from a tax receipt for the full value of your eligible securities or mutual funds.
