Give The Gift of Securities
Donate Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds
Why Donate Securities?
When you make a gift of securities to Partners In Health Canada, you’re joining the fight for global health equity that has immediate impact. 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 will also receive a charitable tax receipt for the full market value of the securities based on the closing price the date they are transferred*. PIH will receive the full value of the securities, allowing your donation to help save lives around the world.
Securities can include, stocks, mutual funds, bonds, flow through shares and employee stock options. You can give now, or as part of your estate and will planning, significantly reducing the taxes payable by your estate.
Giving Securities is Easy

- Complete the transfer form: Ask your broker to electronically transfer your securities to Partners In Health by downloading and completing this securities transfer form.
- Receive a charitable receipt: Once the transfer is initiated be sure to get in touch so we know you made your gift, can provide your tax receipt, and we can share our gratitude.
