Gifting securities, shares, and mutual funds can save taxes - and make an impact.
For gifts of securities, there is favourable tax treatment related to the taxable portion of a capital gain. If you are considering making a gift, you may want to consider a gift of appreciated securities. Anyone considering this type of gift should consult their professional advisors before proceeding. When assets are gifted, a capital gain may result. However, if you transfer shares directly to the WDMH Foundation, you don’t pay any capital gains and you’ll receive a charitable income tax receipt for the amount of what the shares are valued at when they settle into the WDMH Foundation’s account.
For gifts of securities, please download our Letter of Intent here. This form should be completed by your broker, with a copy sent to the WDMH Foundation to email@example.com, and a copy sent to our broker (as noted on the form).
