Gift of Securities

Donating publicly traded stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other securities is a tax-smart way to support Special Olympics PEI while enhancing your charitable gift.  By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that would be payable if you were to first sell the stock, and then donate the proceeds.  

Donating securities is easy!   Simply fill out the Securities Donation Form to have your brokerage electronically transfer your gift of stock or securities from your account to Special Olympics PEI’s account.  You will receive a tax receipt for income tax purposes for the full appreciated value of your securities on the day that they are received.
