We accept donations of publicly traded securities and mutual funds, which are safely and easily processed by CanadaHelps. Donating securities is one of the most tax-smart ways to make a charitable donation.
- Click on the "Donate Securities" button below and create a profile on CanadaHelps (if you don't already have one).
- Answer a few basic questions using CanadaHelps' online securities donation form. You will be asked about the securities you would like to donate and how to contact your financial advisor and investment firm.
- Complete the provided Letter of Direction form and send it to your financial advisor or investment firm. This authorizes your advisor to transfer the shares to CanadaHelps.
CanadaHelps will notify you by email once it completes the sales, and a tax receipt will be sent to you for the value of your donation. The funds will be disbursed to the CCR directly by CanadaHelps, deducing a non-commercial administration fee.
