Have You Considered Making a Gift
of Listed Securities?

Do you have securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds) that have increased in value significantly since you purchased them? Did you know that charitable gifts of listed securities are exempt from capital gains tax?
When selling or cashing in securities you are taxed on 50% of the capital gain. If, however, you choose to transfer (donate) the securities to a charity, like the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation, you are exempt from paying capital gains and receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities.
The charitable tax receipt can then be used to offset your taxes.
