With changes to the taxation of charitable gifts of securities, it is now even more tax-advantageous for you to make a gift of stock, and provides another way for you to save and protect animals in need.
Donations of publicly listed securities (i.e. shares, bonds or units of mutual fund trusts), transferred to the BC SPCA, unlike gifts of cash, are fully exempt from capital gains tax. In addition, you will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full market value of the donated securities on the day that the shares are received.
To make a gift of securities, the easiest and most cost effective to do so, is transferring the gift directly to the BC SPCA.
Please download this form required to transfer securities (PDF), and complete with your broker or financial advisor.
