Donating Stocks and Securities as a Charitable Contribution
Orbis Canada encourages charitable donations of stock and securities. By donating securities, you may be able to avoid capital gain taxes and make a larger gift at a lower original cost. As a registered Canadian charity, Orbis Canada can sell stocks or mutual funds without tax consequences. Please always consult your own tax planner or financial advisor before making such donations.
If your financial services provider holds stock and securities for your account, ask that the securities be electronically transferred to the following broker where Orbis (a.k.a "Project Orbis International") has an active account. The information for the stock donation can be found here.
The gift is complete on the date that the stock is instructed to be transferred to the Orbis broker. The value of your gift will be the mean value of the stock on the transfer instruction date.
Please notify us as soon as possible so we can track your gift and thank you as soon as possible. For more information, please contact our office at email@example.com or 1.877.672.4722.
