A Gift of Securities, Mutual Funds or Flow through shares

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. This may provide a greater benefit to you than donating cash.

If you would like to make a gift of securities, mutual funds, or flow through shares today, simply follow these easy steps:
Step 1:
Complete the Securities Transfer Direction form, then print and sign it.

Step 2:
Fax or give the form to your broker.

Step 3:
Instruct your broker to transfer the shares directly to CNIBís brokerage account.

Step 4:
Instruct your broker to fax a copy of this form to Gilbert Mallette, Manager, Treasury, CNIB at 416-480-7700.
Please note:
  • CNIB's investment advisor will require the instructions of CNIB before selling the shares.
  • CNIB needs your address so that we can issue your tax receipt.
