Donating appreciated securities is a wonderfully tax-effective way to support Family Services of Greater Vancouver!

Rather than paying tax on 50% of your capital gain when selling an appreciated stock or mutual fund, consider donating the appreciated securities. No capital gains tax will be triggered, and you will receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value.

Whether making this gift today, or incorporating it into your estate plan, know that your gift has the potential to make a significant difference for the individuals and families we serve, today and tomorrow.

How to Make Your Gift

Transferring your appreciated securities to Family Services is simple. Please complete our Securities Donation Form and provide it to your broker, who will then arrange for the transfer on your behalf.
