Providing Dog Guides to Canadians with Disabilities
Gift of Publically Traded Securities to
Lions Foundation of Canada/ Dog Guides Canada

By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that you’d have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. You’ll also receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation. Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, flow-through shares, and employee stock options. You can give now, or as part of your estate and will planning. Giving is simple. Consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact. Then simply ask your broker to transfer your securities to Lions Foundation of Canada by completing the Stocks and Securities transfer form and emailing it to:
