Donations of stocks or securities
Gifts of securities are a tax effective way to contribute to Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation. 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.
