Benefits of donating securities or mutual funds


Giving to causes that mean the most to you is a wonderful way to make a positive impact on the world. For Canadians who are passionate about animal welfare and hoping to make a difference, donating securities and/or mutual funds to organizations like World Animal Protection can be a powerful way to contribute.

A generous gift today has the power to rescue wild animals from suffering, provide them with nourishment and care in our partner sanctuaries, and pave the way for groundbreaking research to support our work to end factory farming globally.

Although you may have not considered giving in this way there are many benefits to donating securities and/or mutual funds. 

Tax advantages* 

One of the most significant benefits of donating securities to a registered charity like World Animal Protection is the opportunity for tax savings. When you donate appreciated securities, you can eliminate the capital gains tax that you would have otherwise incurred if you had sold them. This means you can support your chosen cause while also reducing your tax liability. 

*If you are thinking about transferring assets that have appreciated, you should seek expert advice from a tax specialist, your broker or qualified financial adviser. 

Simplicity and convenience 

The process of donating securities or mutual funds is relatively straightforward, especially when working with established charities like World Animal Protection.
