Your gift of securities to BC Women’s Health Foundation ensures women have access to the highest quality healthcare when, where, and how they need it. Canadians who donate appreciated securities directly to a registered charity eliminate capital gains tax on the investment. You’ll also receive a charitable tax receipt for the amount of the proceeds.

Eligible Gifts

Eligible gifts of stocks and securities include: shares listed on a Canadian or American stock exchange, a share of the capital stock of a mutual fund corporation, a unit of a mutual fund trust, or an interest in a related segregated fund trust. You can also give as part of your estate and will planning.
