Gifts of Securities make sense!
Both our Canadian and US Donors can make gifts of appreciated securities and gain a significant tax advantage.
By donating securities you:
- Avoid capital gains tax
- Qualify for a tax-deduction based on the fair market value of stock
- Support the Shaw Festival
Gift of securities for Canadian Donors are handled through RBC Dominion Securities, St. Catharines, ON
Gifts of securities for US Donors are handled through M&T Bank, Buffalo, NY
In order to receive timely and appropriate acknowledgement, please notify Christine Pellerin of your gift. Thank you.
Matching gifts can make even more of an impact!
Many corporations offer matching gift programs for employees and retirees which will increase or even double your support and privileges. Contact your Human Resources department to see if your company participates in matching charitable donations.
