Tax benefits for you, immeasurable benefits for the Library

Save more, give more. The Canada Revenue Agency does not apply capital gains tax on donations of publicly traded securities. By donating marketable stocks and securities to the Calgary Public Library Foundation, you will see tax benefits while providing impact for the Library.

When considering a planned gift, we encourage you to seek independent legal and/or financial planning advice.

Gifts of marketable stocks and securities are transferable through your broker or financial advisor.

  1. Click to download our form for your advisor or broker.
  2. Send a copy of the form to the Calgary Public Library Foundation.
  3. All donated securities are sold upon receipt and you will receive a tax receipt for the value of the securities donated based on the closing price on the day of receipt by our custodial agent.

We are happy to provide more information. Please feel free to contact us.
