Making a Difference

Making a gift of securities to Family Services of Greater Vancouver is among the least expensive ways you can help make life a little easier for those families most in need in our communities. Tax laws by the Government of Canada allow the donor to avoid paying capital gains tax when transferring publicly-traded securities to registered charities.

Donating securities to Family Services of Greater Vancouver is easy:

  • Your broker will then arrange for the transfer, contact and forward the securities transfer form to our agent, Richard Kortje at Canaccord Capital.
  • Canaccord Capital will advise Family Services upon receipt of the securities.
  • You will receive a charitable gift receipt for the amount of your gift on the closing value of the security on date of receipt of the security in Family Services of Greater Vancouver’s account.
