Donating securities is of mutual benefit – it’s a way of supporting Pathways to Education and it offers a great tax advantage.
In May 2006, the federal government eliminated capital gains taxes on appreciated securities donated to a charity. Donating securities directly to Pathways Canada avoids the tax on capital gains, maximizes the return on your investment and protects the tax credits for use against other taxable income.
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 five additional years. You pay no capital gains tax on the appreciated value of your securities.
Your gift of securities entitles you to an official donation receipt for the full market value of your donation.
To make a gift of securities, download, print and complete the Gift of Securities Transfer Form. Completed forms can be sent to:
