Donating securities, like stocks, mutual funds, or employee stock options, is one of the easiest ways to take advantage of tax benefits and maximize your support to the Fort Edmonton Foundation. A gift of securities is a tax efficient way to give as it entitles you to a donation receipt for the full market value (resale) of your contribution.
Your gift will result in a non-refundable tax credit that will reduce your income taxes. You can use it in the year of your gift or carry it forward for up to five additional years.
You pay no capital gains tax on the appreciated value (increased price) of your securities. You will maximize the return on your investment, and protect the tax credits for use against other taxable income.
There are two ways you can easily donate securities to the Fort Edmonton Foundation.
