GIVING A GIFT OF SECURITIES
Take advantage of tax benefits when you make a donation of stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
A gift of securities can be put to work immediately supporting the programs and services offered to those experiencing poverty in the HRM.
The Power of Security Gifts
Securities, including publicly listed stocks, bonds and mutual funds may be donated directly to Brunswick Street Mission. If you transfer them directly, rather than selling them and donating the proceeds, you will eliminate any capital gains tax that would otherwise be owing. You will also receive a valuable tax credit for the full value of the securities.
Gifts of securities may be made during your lifetime or as a gift in your will. Both will achieve the same tax benefit.
Consult with your financial advisor to decide which of your investments is best to donate.
