A Gift of Securities

Making a gift of securities to Carea is a worthwhile and tax-free alternative to donating cash. Securities are an easy way to make a difference.

There is no capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated securities, meaning there are substantial tax incentives. By donating appreciated stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, or flow through shares, your donation is exempt from capital gains and you’ll receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities.

Please contact us if you'd like to make a gift of securities.
