DONATE STOCKS, BONDS AND MUTUAL FUNDS AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE TAX BENEFITS

When you make a gift of securities to the Sickle Cell Association of Ontario, you’re joining the fight to conquer Sickle Cell in a way that has an immediate impact.  By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that you’d have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds.  You’ll also receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation.

Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, flow-through shares, and employee stock options.  You can give now, or as part of your estate and will planning.

Giving is simple.  Click the DONATE button below to answer a few basic questions using our online securities donation form on our partner site, CanadaHelps.org.  They’ll ask you about the securities you’d like to donate and how to contact your financial advisor and investment firm.  Finish up the process by completing the provided Letter of Direction form and send it to your financial advisor or investment firm.  This authorizes your advisor to transfer the shares to CanadaHelps. CanadaHelps.org will complete the sale and send you a tax receipt.

It’s as easy as that, so let’s get started!
