If you own stocks or mutual funds that have grown in value, you will face a tax bill when you sell them. The 2006 Federal Budget introduced a special tax incentive on gifts of Publicly Traded Securities and Mutual Funds.
You can give a gift of publicly traded securities to March of Dimes Canada and eliminate the capital gains tax. By donating securities directly to March of Dimes Canada, you can reduce your tax bill and make a significant gift at the same time. This can be a great way for you to support our vital programs on behalf of adults and children with physical disabilities.
