Gift of Securities

If you own publicly-traded securities or mutual funds, especially those that have increased in value, donating them directly to The Stop is an excellent way to support our work and receive significant tax advantages. 

Changes to Canada’s tax laws mean that you can give a gift of publicly-traded securities to a registered charity like The Stop and eliminate the capital gains tax on the appreciated value. You will receive a tax receipt based upon the market value of the shares on the date of donation.

Like all donations to The Stop, your gift of securities supports our vital anti-hunger, anti-poverty, and community-building initiatives. Our food bank, perinatal support, community kitchens, urban agriculture, food education, and community action programs are critical resources for thousands of people in our community.

Donating shares to The Stop is quick and simple. Download the instructions here.
