Gifts of Stock

You can make a significant gift to the environment by donating securities (in the form of stocks or mutual funds) directly to us.

Donors who transfer securities directly to charities are exempt from the capital gains tax, making this type of donation very beneficial to both the donor and the charity.

Here’s how it works:

  • To avoid incurring a capital gains tax, donors can transfer their securities directly to Sierra Club Canada Foundation.
  • We then promptly sell the securities after the transfer.
  • The donor avoids the capital gains tax, and we benefit from an immediate and significant gift.
  • You will receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the shares on the day they are transferred to Sierra Club Canada Foundation.

If you intend to donate securities, please be in touch and we will provide you with a Letter of Direction for your financial broker.

To discuss the transfer of securities, please call us at 1-888-810-4204 or by email:
