Gifts of Securities

Your donation of securities – shares, bonds or mutual funds – can be an effective and affordable way to protect Ontario’s natural heritage.

Donations of publicly traded securities to a registered charity are exempt from capital gains tax. With your gift, you will receive a charitable tax receipt from Ontario Nature for the full market value of your donated securities at the date of the transfer.
