Make a Gift of Securities
Support the Trans Canada Trail with this tax-effective donation option
Many donors are turning their appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual fund units into gifts. Making a gift of securities benefits you and Trans Canada Trail.
Giving to Trans Canada Trail is simple. Consult your financial advisor to decide which investments will have the most financial impact for you and the best philanthropic impact for Trans Canada Trail. Then ask your broker to transfer your securities to Trans Canada Trail by completing the transfer form. And finally, get in touch and let us know you have made your gift so that we can show our appreciation.
