Make a Donation of Stocks or Mutual Fund Shares

Donating stocks or mutual fund shares is one of the smartest ways to support the Church while realizing significant tax savings. When you give a gift of shares to a registered charity, there are no capital gains taxes applied to the fully realized amount of the gift. In this way, the Church receives the full value of the securities, you receive a tax receipt for the full value of the gift, and you pay no capital gains tax on any increase in the price of those donated securities.

If you are considering making a gift to the Parish and you own appreciated securities, you may want to consider making this gift through this method. Also, if you are considering selling all or a portion of your investment in securities that have appreciated significantly, you may want to consider donating all or a portion to the Parish. This can allow you to make a meaningful gift to the Church, while also eliminating the capital gains tax you would have otherwise had to pay on the balance of the securities you plan to sell.

For more information about making a gift of securities, please contact Francis Doyle at 905-528-7988 ext. 2235 (Francis works for our Diocese and is best suited to help with this - just mention this is for St. Margaret Mary Parish) or you can talk to Father Jamroz directly. All calls are confidential.
