Gift of Shares Deadline

When you donate shares to Valley Regional Hospital Foundation you are investing in your healthcare. Plus, you can greatly reduce capital gains on gifted shares and receive a charitable tax receipt – it’s a win-win opportunity!

To encourage charitable giving, the government provides tax credits when you donate to a registered charity. A further tax benefit is provided when you donate certain publicly traded securities in-kind.

There are a variety of types of publicly traded securities, which can become gifts to our Foundation:

  • Shares, or rights listed on prescribed stock exchanges across Canada as well as many foreign stock exchanges.
  • Shares of capital stock of a mutual fund corporation.
  • Units of segregated fund trusts (a mutual fund relating to an insurance policy).

Please note: As with any planned gift, we strongly advise that you speak with your legal advisor or financial planner to ensure your needs are met.

Gifts of shares need to be received by the Foundation by December 31, 2021 to be eligible for a 2021 tax receipt.
