Donate Securities

Gifts of publicly traded securities are subject to generous tax incentives in Canada – there are no capital gains on gifts of securities (stocks, income trust units, bonds, mutual fund units and shares) to charities, making this one of the most tax-effective ways to make a donation to Help Lesotho. Most importantly, your donation will be put to work right away to support future generations of people in Lesotho.

It is easy to transfer securities electronically from your brokerage account to the Help Lesotho account. We will issue you a receipt for the closing price on the date the transfer occurs. Kindly complete this Securities Transfer Form with your broker, have them contact our broker to initiate the transfer, and mail or scan a copy to Help Lesotho.

For more information, please contact Help Lesotho at 613-369-5868 or info@helplesotho.org.
