Gift of Stock

Donating publicly listed securities to CFHN is an attractive option for some donors. Donors are not taxed on the capital gains accrued on securities such as public company shares, bonds, mutual fund units and employee stock options donated directly to a registered charity. The process of making a gift of shares is relatively easy and the tax savings are immense. Prior to donating shares, ALL DONORS should consult with their financial advisor.
