How it works:

Transfer the gifted securities to Abundance Canada in-kind, instead of selling. This reduces the capital gains inclusion rate from 50% to zero, which generates greater tax savings than donating cash proceeds.

Abundance Canada sells those securities and distributes or manages the cash for the charities you want to support with your gift. Abundance Canada provides you with a charitable receipt for the fair market value.

The Benefits:

  • You receive a single charitable receipt from Abundance Canada for tax purposes.
  • Tell us how to distribute your gift to charities of your choice.
  • Your distributions can be spread over a number of years.
  • We respect your anonymity if you so wish.
