Why Donate Securities?

When you give a gift of securities to Toronto Public library, you are investing in our city and will make a lasting impact on our community’s access to knowledge, literacy, and lifelong learning.

A donation of publicly-traded securities will eliminate capital gains tax that you would have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. You will also receive a charitable tax receipt for the full fair market value of the donation.

Securities can include stocks, bonds and mutual funds that trade on the stock exchange. You have the flexibility to make a gift now or include it in your will and estate planning as a future contribution.

Giving is so easy. Consult your financial or tax advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact. Get in touch and let us know if you have, or plan to make a gift. We can help guide you through the process, and show our appreciation and how your donation will make a difference to enrich the lives of those who rely on the Library.
