A donation of publicly traded securities or mutual fund shares is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to support Kidney Cancer Canada. Under the rules set out in the 2006 federal budget, you may give stocks, bonds, futures and options, as well as shares in mutual funds and you will pay no tax on the capital gain. This greatly reduces the out-of-pocket expense of making such a donation.
Our receipt is valued based on the closing price on the day when the shares are legally transferred to the charity’s account at our custodial agent, RBC Wealth Management | RBC Dominion Securities Inc. (Note: shares are considered legally transferred only when delivery is confirmed by our custodial agent.) Kidney Cancer Canada’s policy for the sale of donated securities is that all shares will be sold as soon as possible after they are received.
To make a gift of securities or mutual fund shares please call Kidney Cancer Canada at 1-866-598-7166.
