Shares & Gifts in Kind

Donating Shares

Donors who donate certain publicly traded securities "in kind" to Canadian private foundations or registered public charities, such as London Health Sciences Foundation, are exempt from the payment of capital gains tax on any profit created by the fair market value of the donation. Qualifying securities include stocks, bonds, trust units, exchange-traded funds, segregated funds and mutual funds units. In order to qualify, the donation must be made "in kind" (or in their current form, unsold) and the shares must be publicly traded on Canadian or other major international exchanges (private company holdings do not qualify at this time).

Donate a Car

Donate a Car Canada accepts vehicle donations for London Health Sciences Foundation. Free towing is provided in most areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle at a Donate a Car Canada location to maximize your donation. When you donate your car, truck, RV, boat, or motorcycle to London Health Sciences Foundation through Donate a Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction (depending on its condition, age and location). After your vehicle donation is complete, Donate a car Canada will send you a tax receipt and will put your gift to good use.
