Benefits to donating appreciated securities
- By donating stock directly to the Nature Conservancy of Canada without cashing it in, you eliminate your capital gains tax bill. You can donate prescribed bonds, mutual funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), shares, warrants, bills and futures that are listed on the stock exchange.
- You will also receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the stock on the day of the transfer to NCC’s account, which will help offset your income taxes.
