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.

Ontarians Jack and Lynn Brooks had been donating to Plan International Canada since 1982 when Lynn gave Jack the gift of sponsoring a child. But it wasn’t until their daughter, who works as an accountant, suggested they consider donating securities to Plan International Canada that they discovered there was a more tax-effective way to make their donations count.
