Transferring Gifts of Canadian Securities

Gifts of securities are a cost-effective way to support Pickering College. By donating appreciated securities, donors pay no tax on the capital gains and receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities. We suggest that you determine with your financial advisor which investments will have this most beneficial financial impact to you to donate. 

Giftabulator is a tool to help you make the most tax-efficient donation, while optimizing your year-end tax savings.
