Gifts of Public Securities

Providence Healthcare Foundation accepts donations of publicly listed securities that can be traded on a recognized stock exchange, e.g. TSE, NYSE. A charitable tax receipt will be issued by Providence Healthcare Foundation for the value of the shares based on the end-of-day trading price on the day the securities are transferred. Your donation of securities can be applied towards a tax credit when filing your income tax return.

Donated gifts-in-kind can be used as an important fundraising vehicle and for our various special events. Tax receipts can be issued if the gift is accompanied by an official appraisal or business receipt. In some cases, an independent appraisal verifying the value of the gift is required in order for a tax receipt to be issued. The Canada Revenue Agency rules are very specific with respect to appraised values. The Foundation will work with you to ensure an appropriate receipt is issued where possible.
