Securities

Your assets can give kids a chance to succeed in education.

The Education Foundation of Ottawa is committed to giving the one in five children who live in poverty in Ottawa an equal chance to succeed. These students aren’t able to focus on learning because they don’t have basic necessities. They come to school with hungry tummies. Participating in extra-curricular activities is often out of the question.

Your gift of securities to the Education Foundation of Ottawa creates the opportunity for children to reach beyond the place they’re starting from.

Gifting your stock to charity may be a better way for you to give.

When you sell shares that have increased in value, you pay tax on half of what you gain. But did you know that if you donate those shares, you don’t pay this capital gains tax? You also get a charitable tax receipt in recognition of your generosity.
