Gift of Securities

Your gift of securities will help bring the dream of a connected Trans Canada Trail closer to reality. The trail is at a pivotal point in its development, with less than four years to go until it scheduled connection in 2017, the generous support of Canadians is more important than ever!

When you make a gift, you will receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the donation and will not pay capital gains tax on the increased value of your securities. Donating publicly traded stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other securities is the most tax-effective way to make your donation to the Trans Canada Trail.

To make your gift of securities:

1. Complete Trans Canada Trail’s Securities Transfer Form.
    Please complete all sections of the form.  This information
     will be used for your tax receipt.

2. Fax or email us your completed Securities Transfer Form.
    This is an important step as it lets us know we can expect
     your gift!

3. Instruct your broker to transfer the securities to
     Trans Canada Trail’s account.  
                                      
    Our account information can be found on the Securities 
     Transfer Form. Please be sure to send us your
     completed Securities Transfer Form before initiating
     the transfer.

Once we have received your gift of securities, we will send you a tax receipt for the full market value of the securities at the closing price on the day they were received by the Trans Canada Trail.

If you have any questions, or would like more information about making a gift of securities, please contact Cherry Marshall at cmarshall@tctrail.ca or call 1-800-465-3636 x 4354
