Donation of Securities

Donating stock, bonds, and mutual funds to Le Nichoir is a tax-efficient way to support the rehabilitation of orphaned and injured wild birds.

When publicly traded securities are sold, the owner normally must pay tax on half the capital gain. If securities are donated, however, no capital gains tax is charged; furthermore, the donor receives a charitable tax receipt that will help offset other taxes.

For further information on this cost-effective way to donate to Le Nichoir, please consult the FAQ section of the CanadaHelps.org website.
