Gift of Securities

Did You Know Banner

You can make a tremendous impact in the lives of children and families in your community with your gift of shares, mutual funds, or publicly traded securities.

It’s simple. Making a charitable donation to KidsAbility Foundation is easy and one of the most efficient ways to give without affecting your personal cash flow. And, this type of gift provides you with a tax deduction in the taxation year you make the gift.

By transferring your gift of shares directly to KidsAbility Foundation,

  • you can reduce your overall taxes
  • receive a tax deduction in the year you make your gift,
  • take advantage of a special tax rule which reduces capital gains taxes to zero for donated investments that are qualifying securities. 

To make your gift, complete this Gift of Shares Form and send to your financial advisor who will provide us your consent to make this type of gift to KidsAbility Foundation. A donation receipt is issued for the fair market value of the shares.

For more information on how you can make an impact this way, the experts at BDO can help at

To help you with your planning we offer Sample Bequest Wording and a Letter of Intention to help guide you through the process. You can also access and download our Legacy Giving Brochure. If you have any questions, I invite you to connect with me.
