Donate Securities

One of the most cost-effective and simple ways to give.

Help fund meaningful and effective development programs around the world — consider donating your publicly traded stocks, bond and mutual funds.

Why Donate Securities?

When you make a gift of securities to Oxfam Canada, you are joining the fight against poverty and inequality in a way that has an immediate impact.

When you donate publicly-traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax you would have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. You will also receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation.
