Give the Gift of Securities

One of the many ways to make a donation to Huntsville Hospital Foundation is transferring your marketable securities directly to the Foundation. You save the capital gains tax on the sale of those shares and the Foundation receives the full amount of your donation. This Canada Revenue Agency statute applies to all registered Canadian charities and their donors. It’s a win/win!

Huntsville Hospital Foundation will provide you with a charitable tax receipt for the full market value on the day they are received in our account. This tax receipt:

  • will help reduce the amount of tax you pay on your income,
  • if your donation exceeds your annual limit you may be able to carry it forward and used in any of the next five years,
  • may help reduce the taxes on your estate in the year of your death – and allow more of your estate to go to your beneficiaries.

 A donation of Securities is a cost-effective opportunity to make a difference for Huntsville Hospital.
