Gift of Securities

If you sell a security, you pay tax on 50% of the capital gain. However, when you donate a gift of securities to United Way Greater Toronto the taxable capital gain is completely eliminated and you receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the security in the amount of the closing trading price on the day United Way Greater Toronto receives the security.

To donate a gift of securities, please complete the Notification of Share Transfer Form and return it to& securities@uwgt.org or contact our Gift of Securities coordinator at 416-777-2001. We will be happy to work with you and your broker.
