Donating securities such as shares or mutual funds is a solution where everyone benefits.
Your donation enables our team to advance end-of-life rights and support suffering Canadians, while you eliminate the capital gains tax you would pay if you first sold the securities and then donated the proceeds.
This chart shows the tax advantage when you donate shares to Dying with Dignity Canada instead of selling them and donating the proceeds (calculations assumes a 50% tax rate). You can use the tax credit in the year of your gift or carry it forward for up to five additional years. Donating securities to Dying with Dignity Canada avoids the tax on capital gains, maximizes the return on your investment and protects the tax credits for use against other taxable income.
We can accept shares, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, flow-through shares, and employee stock options. Donate now or as part of your estate to leave us a gift as part of your legacy. Read more about the benefits of donating securities.
To get started, fill out this form with your financial advisor, have them send the information to our partners at RBC, and send the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org so that our team is aware that your gift is in process.
We will receive confirmation shortly after your advisor process your transfer, and you will receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation within three weeks.
Empower. Inform. Protect your rights.
