Securities donations

Donating publicly traded securities (shares or mutual funds) to BCCLA offers you a tax-smart way of making a gift.

When you transfer the securities in-kind to BCCLA:

  • Your donation is exempt from capital gains tax
  • You will receive a charitable receipt for the full market value of the donated security.

If you are interested in donating securities to BCCLA, please initiate the donation with your broker and forward a completed and signed copy of our Securities Donation Request Form to your Investment Advisor/brokerage institution. Your Investment Advisor/brokerage institution will arrange for the electronic transfer of shares to the BCCLA’s broker.

For more information about donating securities, please contact Maggie Knight, Operations Director at 604-595-8925 or [email protected]
