Donating stocks and securities to JDRF Canada is one of the most cost effective ways to help fund type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. When you sell an appreciated stock in Canada, you must pay tax of 50 per cent of your earnings. However, you can now donate these securities to public charities such as JDRF Canada, without incurring any capital gains tax. If your stock has depreciated and you are considering selling it, please consider donating the proceeds to JDRF Canada and help make a difference in the lives and futures of those living with T1D. A tax receipt will be issued for the market price value of the securities.
