Benefits of a gift of securities
Reading glasses on a Newspaper

Make a healthy investment

When you give a gift of securities to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, you can put stock in knowing you are supporting vital research, health education and advocacy programs. From funding research discoveries which increase cardiac arrest survival rates, to educating at-risk groups about lowering their blood pressure and living a healthy lifestyle, you will help create better, healthier lives for thousands of people across Canada.

Your gift of securities entitles you to an official donation receipt for the full market value of your donation.
Your gift of securities will result in a generous, non-refundable tax credit that will have the effect of lowering your taxes. You can use your tax credit in the year of your gift, or carry it forward for up to 5 additional years.

You pay no capital gains tax on the appreciated value of your securities.
In May 2006, the federal government eliminated capital gains taxes on appreciated securities donated to a charity. Donating securities directly to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario avoids the tax on capital gains, maximizes the return on your investment and protects the tax credits for use against other taxable income.
