Gift of securities

Main Content

By choosing to give the CNIB Foundation a gift of securities, you receive valuable tax benefits while building a legacy that helps the CNIB Foundation continue to change what it is to be blind through innovative programs and powerful advocacy.

When you donate publicly traded securities, mutual funds or flow through shares to the CNIB Foundation, you won't incur the capital gains tax and you’ll benefit from a tax receipt for the full value of your gift. You save on taxes while making a powerful gift that helps the CNIB Foundation empower people impacted by blindness to live their dreams and tear down barriers to inclusion.

Make a gift of securities in four easy steps:

1. Complete the Securities Transfer Direction Form, then print and sign it.
2. Send the form to your broker.
3. Instruct your broker to transfer the shares to CNIB's brokerage account.
4. Fax a copy of this form to Gilbert Mallette, 416-480-7700.
