Make a Gift of Securities

A gift of publicly traded securities is a great opportunity to make a significant and tax efficient gift to support North York General Hospital. 

By donating publicly traded securities directly to North York General, not only will you receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities, you will also eliminate the capital gains tax that would have been payable if such securities were sold on the market.  

The chart below shows the tax advantage of donating shares directly to North York General Foundation vs. selling shares and then donating the cash proceeds.
