Donating Stocks and Securities
A gift of appreciated publicly traded securities is a simple and tax-effective way of supporting Second Harvest.
When you donate publicly traded securities (including stocks, bonds, and units of mutual funds that are listed on the Canadian or U.S. stock exchanges) you are not required to pay tax on the capital gains. You will also get a tax receipt for the full appreciated value of the donated stock.
The receipt value will be based on the closing trading price on the day that the stocks are received in Second Harvest’s brokerage account.
