As of 2006, Canadians are not taxed on the capital gain of the donated securities. You receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities. By donating gifts of securities, you often enjoy tax savings greater than those you receive when donating cash. Securities can be donated throughout your lifetime or through your will.

Cryptocurrency is also accepted as a donation method at the Foundation. This new medium is treated similarly to a donation of stocks and securities, and those wishing to donate cryptocurrency may do so via Exchange Traded Fund (ETF). Please note that cryptocurrency held within digital wallets cannot be accepted. For more information or donation instructions, please call the Foundation office at
