The Benefits

  • You pay no tax on the capital gains that have accumulated on the securities.
  • Your donation receipt will reflect the closing market value of the shares on the day that our brokers receive them.
  • Your donation of securities can support a specific project in Canadian Ministries (Camps, Military or Prison Ministries, Newcomer’s Bible or more). Alternately, you may wish to designate your gift to International Projects, including translation projects worldwide.

Please note: Electronic transfers of securities can take up to 10 business days. To ensure that the transfer is completed by year-end and that you are eligible for an official receipt for income tax purposes, we recommend you instruct your broker on the transfer to ensure that the transaction is completed by December 31.
