Gift of Securities

 It's easy to make a gift of securities!

The benefits of donating a gift of securities to The Children's Foundation of Guelph and Wellington are many. First, you will receive a tax receipt for the closing price of the securities on the day of the transfer to the Children's Foundation of Guelph and Wellington. Second, your donation is exempt from the capital gains tax that typically applies to the sale of a security. Finally, you will have the comfort of knowing that your donation is bettering the lives of children in need.

The Process

  • Complete and follow the instructions in the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington Securities Donation form available by Clicking Here
  • A charitable tax receipt will be issued for the closing price of the securities on the day of the transfer to the Children's Foundation. All securities are sold on the same day as received.

The Benefits

If you sell a security, you pay tax on 50% of the capital gain.

However, when you donate a gift of securities the taxable capital gain is completely eliminated AND you receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the security in the amount of the closing price on the day of the transfer.

This multiplies the impact of the tax benefit of your charitable giving.
