Stocks and bonds may not be top of mind when you think of supporting parks and preservation, but they can work for you and for the Foundation.
You may enjoy significant tax savings if you donate appreciated stocks, shares, bonds or mutual funds. You’ll enjoy significantly greater tax savings by donating publicly traded securities directly to PPF rather than selling the same securities and donating the cash proceeds, because you won’t pay capital gains tax on the appreciation of the shares. You can donate both electronic and certificate shares, or gifts of publicly traded options. You’ll receive a donation receipt for the value of your gifts immediately.
We will be happy to help you work out the details of any type of donation, including a charitable remainder trust. You can apply your tax receipt against current and future income and you'll continue to receive the income earned by the capital during your lifetime.
Or, designate the Pacific Parklands Foundation as the direct beneficiary on an RRSP or RRIF form for an easy deferred gift with many benefits.
