Donating your Securities to ACT

Tax-Advantaged Giving
All investors must dispose of stock at some point. If you sell your stocks for cash, you'll pay the Capital Gains tax. But donating the stocks eliminates that tax and provides you with a tax-deductible receipt for the full market value of your securities.

Tax incentives for charities
Canada’s tax incentives for charitable donations are designed to make it easier for you to support your favourite charities – including ACT. Thanks to changes to the Income Tax Act, capital gains on donated shares are no longer taxed and Canadians can now donate their publicly traded securities or mutual funds without incurring Capital Gains tax.
