Publicly Listed Securities

Gifts of Publically Listed Securities

If you're a Canadian paying capital gain taxes, you're probably well aware that you can now donate publicly listed securities to public charities without incurring any capital gains tax.

With the new developments in the discovery of biomarkers, the Arthritis Research Foundation is now second to none in North America with its collaborative approach to all inflammatory disorders. There is still much to be done, and with your donation, the acceleration of discovery is increasing.

We thank you for your support, in helping us beat arthritis. Simply download and complete our Gift of Publicly Listed Securities form.

Forward the form to your broker/investment advisor who will handle the transfer and forward a copy to the Arthritis Research Foundation.

A charitable tax receipt will be issued based on the market value of the transferred securities, determined at the close of trading on the day our custodial agency (CIBC Investor Services Inc. ) receives the securities.

The Arthritis Research Foundation's policy for the sale of donated securities is that all shares will be sold as soon as possible after they have been received. We recommend you discuss your gift intentions with your family and your own financial or legal advisers.
