The Benefits of Giving Gifts of Securities this Holiday Season

Dec 05, 2017

This holiday season, give a Gift of Securities.


For over 25 years Sue Johnson of Victoria BC has helped families in rural Sub Saharan Africa meet life’s most basic needs.

Each year Sue assesses her securities portfolio and chooses to support CPAR programs through gifts of securities. Giving securities as a gift allows her to make larger gifts – and have a greater impact in her philanthropic support.

“This is a great way for me to donate more – and help more families. And my financial advisor reminds me that the tax benefit is definitely an added advantage.” Sue explains.

When you donate a gift of stocks, bonds, or other publicly traded securities to CPAR you:
  • Do not need to pay tax on capital gains
  • Receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the securities you have donated
Like Sue Johnson, you too can make a gift of securities this holiday season, and increase your overall philanthropic support of families living in rural Sub-Saharan Africa.
