Stocks and Securities

Donating gifts of publicly traded stocks or securities is a very tax wise way to support Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. If you make a gift of securities, there is no tax on the capital gains on the increased value of the securities.

You will receive a receipt for the fair market value of the gift. This way you can maximize your tax advantage and still make a significant gift of hope.

For information and directions and to facilitate the transfer of an in-kind gift of securities, please use this form.

The Reynolds supported Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada through their volunteer work and their gifts. “Our good friends lost their son to a brain tumour and we are struggling with a brain tumour in our family. Our annual gift of stock gives us the opportunity to make a larger gift to help brain tumour patients and at the same time we realize tax savings.”
