Did you know that you can eliminate capital gains tax by donating your shares directly to the Nova Scotia SPCA?
Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds and employee stock options. A tax receipt for the full market value of the donation will be provided to you and can help reduce the amount of tax you pay on your income.
To get started, consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the biggest impact. Next, complete the transfer form (below) with your broker or financial advisor.
Finally, please let us know about your gift so we can expect the transfer and thank you for your generosity!
