Donate by Gift of Securities

Thank you, kind human, for considering this gift!

Advantages of Gifts of Securities
Not only will you be supporting a network of inspiring young leaders, gifting your securities also means reducing your capital gains taxes by 100%. When you sell publicly listed securities, you must pay capital gains tax on 50% of the increase in value since you bought them. But if you donate these same securities, you don't pay capital gains tax.

When you gift your securities, you receive a tax receipt for their full market value. This tax receipt can be applied to a maximum of 75% of your other taxable income. Donations in excess of the annual limit may be carried forward and used in any of the five subsequent years.
