Gift of Stock and Securities

The Canadian Red Cross gratefully receives gifts in the form of securities such as stocks and mutual funds. These securities must be transferred first to the Red Cross, not cashed in, to receive the tax benefits.

Determining when and how to make a Gift of Securities and which securities to donate, will depend on your personal choice.

If you are considering making a gift via the transfer of securities we will provide you with a Letter of Direction for your broker to use in transferring the securities.  Please download a copy of our securities transfer form and contact your local representative for more information.
