Gift of Securities Calculator

If you own publicly traded securities, mutual funds, or flow through shares, you may want to consider donating them directly to CNIB. Canadians can donate their publicly traded securities or mutual funds without incurring the Capital gain tax. Capital gains on donated shares are not taxed.
