Gifts of securities
Make your gift today@(Model.HeadingTag)>
By supporting the Canadian Cancer Society with a gift of securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that you would have paid if you sold the securities and donated the proceeds. And you will receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation. Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, and employee stock options.
Donating appreciated stocks, mutual funds or stock options means you pay no tax on the capital gains and receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities. This efficient alternative to cash provides a substantial tax incentive and gives you the satisfaction of seeing your gift put to use today.
A gift of securities is thoughtful and supports the mission of creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer. By making a gift today you are part of a nationwide community that improves and saves lives for the one in two Canadians who will face cancer.
