Donations of publicly listed securities (i.e. shares, bonds or units of mutual fund trusts), transferred to the BC SPCA are fully exempt from capital gains tax.
To make a gift of securities, the easiest and most cost effective to do so, is transferring the gift directly to the BC SPCA.
You will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full market value of the donated securities on the day that the shares are received.
With changes to the taxation of charitable gifts of securities, it is now even more tax-advantageous for you to make a gift of stock, while providing another way for you to save and protect animals in need.
Please download the Securities Gifting Form to transfer securities, and complete with your broker or financial advisor.
If your gift of stock is from an Estate, please use this form.

If you have questions about donating stocks in relation to Estates, please contact Yolanda Benoit, BC SPCA Senior Manager, Will & Estate Gifts or call 604-681-7271 ext. 1302.
