Donation of Securities
A donation of securities or mutual fund shares can be made here through CanadaHelps.
Some notes to help you when making a donation of securities:
- In the dialogue box requesting “Investment Management” information, you can select either “I work with a broker” or “I use a self-directed investment platform”. Click inside the box, not on the arrow, to get the option you want.
- When you complete this form, CanadaHelps automatically generates a “letter of direction” that is uniquely linked to the securities form by a 4-digit PIN. (You will not see Ignatius Jesuit Centre on this form but it will get to our account.)
- Complete this Letter of Direction form. This authorizes the transfer of shares to CanadaHelps. CanadaHelps will send a charitable tax receipt for the full market value of the security based on the close price on the day when the transfer of securities goes into CanadaHelps’ account.
- CanadaHelps works with Scotia McLeod (as indicated on the LOD). Scotia will sell the share(s), and once the sale is settled, CanadaHelps will issue you a tax receipt and transfer the proceeds to our bank account (we have set up automatic deposit with CanadaHelps). CanadaHelps does not hold on to the securities and does not pass them on to us. CanadaHelps charges a small, non-commercial fee to manage the transaction. (Due to fees and market fluctuations, the amount transferred to us will likely differ from the full market value that was assessed when the securities were first transferred.)
