Donation of Securities

Donation of securities is one of the most tax-smart ways to give. There are a number of reasons to give gifts-of-stock. Here are some examples of how gifts-of-stock benefit you and Surrey Women’s Centre.

You save on taxes and end-up giving more

Say you have a stock or real-estate investment that has appreciated for more than a year. When or if you sell that stock, 50% of the gains would count as taxable income.

This means that you would have less to give or use, because you have to pay taxes first. However, if you donate the shares to Surrey Women’s Centre, you wouldn’t have to pay any Capital Gains tax and you would get a larger tax credit to apply towards your taxes.

It’s easy to give to Surrey Women’s Centre

While it seems complicated, all you need to do is speak with your bank or broker to arrange for the stock to be gifted to Surrey Women’s Centre.

You will need the following information to do that:

  • Legal Name: Surrey Women’s Centre
  • Address: 10075 Whalley Boulevard; Surrey, BC, V3T 4G1
  • Charity Registration #: 140327891RR0001

Seek financial advice
