Donating publicly-traded shares or mutual funds to Plan International Canada offers you a tax-smart way of making a gift.

You will need to instruct your broker to transfer the securities to Plan International Canada’s brokerage account and inform us by completing the Securities Transfer Form (PDF)

The benefits:

  • You pay no tax on the capital gains that have accumulated on the securities.
  • Your donation receipt will reflect the closing market value of the shares on the day our brokers receive them.
  • Your donation of securities can cover your child sponsorships, support a specific project, or establish an endowment fund.
Please note that electronic transfers of securities can take up to 10 business days. To ensure that the transfer is completed by year-end and that you are eligible for a 2016 official receipt for income tax purposes, we recommend you instruct your broker on the transfer no later than December 15, 2016.
