Stocks & Mutual Funds

A donation of stocks, securities or mutual fund shares is an efficient way to give.

When you donate your securities directly to Edmonton's Food Bank, capital gains aren’t subject to tax. This means Edmonton's Food Bank receives a larger gift, and you’ll benefit from a tax receipt for the full value of your eligible securities or mutual funds.

The Canada Revenue Agency does not apply capital gains tax on donations of publicly traded securities.

We work with Scotia iTrade as well CanadaHelps to receive gifts of securities.
