You can gift publicly traded securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc.) or other assets such as private company shares, real estate, farm property business or commercial property through Abundance Canada to benefit Bethania. These gifts have become popular as people discover the potential tax advantages and benefits to charity.
Instead of selling the securities, you transfer them to Abundance Canada in kind. Abundance Canada then sells the gifted securities and makes the cash available to distribute to Bethania or to be managed for the ongoing benefit of Bethania. Abundance Canada provides a charitable receipt for the fair market value of the gift.
A gift of appreciated publicly traded securities, if made in kind to Abundance Canada, will generate greater tax savings for you compared to selling the securities and donating the cash proceeds.
