You can make a gift of publicly traded securities such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds to Unity Project for Relief of Homelessness in London, Registered Canadian Charity #859628851RR0001.
Eligible donors receive a charitable tax receipt for the market value of the gifted securities on the day they arrive in Unity Project’s account. You, as the donor, can use this tax receipt to help reduce the amount of tax payable on your income. If necessary, you can carry the tax receipt forward to any of the following five years.
Any increase in value in the donated securities during the time when you held them will not be subjected to any capital gains tax. This applies to gifts of securities that you make now or to those that are deferred into the future through a provision in your will.
