When you make a gift of securities to Stratford Chefs School, you’re joining the fight for high quality and excellence in education in a way that has immediate impact. By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that you’d have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. You’ll also receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation.
Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, flow-through shares, and employee stock options. You can give now, or as part of your estate and will planning.
Giving is simple. Consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact. Then ask your broker to transfer your securities to Stratford Chefs School by completing the appropriate transfer form.
Donations can be made through Canada Helps, our account page is at this link: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/securities/donate
And finally, do get in touch to let us know you have made your gift so that we can show our appreciation.
