Thinking about ways to maximize your gift?

If you have publicly traded securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds), gifting them to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is an option to consider.

When you make a gift of appreciated publicly traded securities, you will not pay income tax on the capital gain triggered by the sale. This allows you to maximize your gift to benefit local families facing cancer while also maximizing your tax benefit. Please consult your own professional advisor for information specifically related to your circumstances.
