Donation of Securities
Making a gift of securities is one of the most tax-effective ways to make a contribution to Heron Hospice Society of Delta.
You can completely eliminate capital gains tax by donating your securities instead of selling them, and then donating the cash. If you sell them first, 50% of the capital gain could be subject to income tax.
Qualifying securities include shares, bonds, warrants, options listed on a Canadian stock exchange, mutual fund shares/units, and segregated fund units.
