What You Can Do Donate Stock

Opportunity International Canada gratefully accepts gifts of securities. Thanks to changes in Canadian tax laws enacted in May 2006, when you donate stocks, mutual funds and other securities to a registered charity, you pay no capital gains tax and receive a tax receipt for the full amount of the gift. It means a great tax break for you and a world of opportunity for communities in need. By giving a gift of appreciated securities/shares, you’ll be able to enjoy the greatest reductions on your income tax – more than if you donated in cash.

Please contact Opportunity International prior to the transfer so that we can properly identify and acknowledge the gift.
