Donate real estate, personal property or publicly listed securities
Real estate and personal property
A gift in kind is a non-cash donation and includes items such as personal effects, artwork and real estate. Once it is determined that UCalgary can accept the gift, the university will issue a charitable receipt for the fair market value of the gift.
Gifts of shares
Gifts of publicly listed securities may include stocks, bonds, bills and mutual funds. There is no capital gains tax on securities given to charities, and you will receive a tax receipt for the market value of your gift.
Many companies donate funds equal to your contribution to the same fund to encourage employees to make charitable contributions. Find out if your company has a gift-matching program by speaking to your human resources department.
