Donate Securities

….and Eliminate Capital Gains Tax!

Consider a gift of listed securities

to the Elgin-St. Thomas Community Foundation

The federal government has eliminated capital gains tax on appreciated listed securities when they are donated to a charity or public Foundation. This results in a double tax benefit to donors.

By transferring the security directly to the Elgin-St. Thomas Community Foundation, donors can eliminate all capital gains tax on their gift, and in addition, the Elgin-St. Thomas Community Foundation can provide a charitable receipt for the full 100% of the fair market value.
