Donating publicly traded securities and mutual funds allows you to amplify the impact of your gift so that you can make a big difference in the lives of children in need.

By donating securities you receive a double tax benefit – you eliminate the capital gains tax you‘d have to pay if you sold your appreciated securities, and you receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation. A gift of securities, therefore, benefits you more than giving cash, and allows you to make a larger gift.

To make a donation of securities please follow the instructions outlined in this securities transfer form.

The benefits:

  • Allows you to amplify the impact of your gift
  • You pay no tax on the capital gains that have accumulated on the securities
  • You receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation
  • Your donation of securities can cover your Child Sponsorships, support a specific project, or establish an endowment
