Donate publicly-traded securities

A gift of public securities such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds can be a tax-efficient way to make a gift to the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Forget Me Not pin

When you donate publicly-traded securities, you may pay no tax on the capital gain but still receive a donation receipt for the fair market value of the securities. The special tax advantage from a gift of public securities applies whether you give them now, during your lifetime or later, through a gift in your will.

Transferring your securities to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. is easy. Simply complete our 
Securities gift form
. Make sure you send the Alzheimer Society of B.C. a copy so we can ensure the transfer goes smoothly.
