Donate stocks, bonds and mutual funds to make life better for those living with dementia while taking advantage of tax benefits on your appreciated securities

When you give a new or existing life insurance policy to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia, you’re turning small monthly premiums into a significant gift.

Benefits to you:

  • Donations of appreciated publicly-listed securities to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia are exempt from capital gains tax.
  • You will receive a tax receipt for the full fair market value of the security based on the closing trading price on the day it is received.
  • Your charitable donation can be claimed up to 75% of your net income and any unused donation amount can be carried forward over the next five years.
  • If you have appreciated stock, you may wish to use this incentive to contribute a meaningful gift to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia.

Leave a gift in your will

Simply put, a gift in your will enables you to plan a meaningful gift to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia that reflect your beliefs and values.
