A stock donation is a unique way to financially support Y2Y’s work. Making a gift of appreciated securities, stocks, bonds or mutual funds is easy to do and may provide you with a tax deduction and savings on capital gains taxes.

Below are a number of ways you can make a securities contribution based on the country you are donating from. Each of these options should ensure your transfer is simple, easy and secure.

You will receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the shares on the date that they are received in Y2Y’s account. And in addition to paying no capital gains on the securities you donate, you’ll also be making a positive impact on conservation.

Please note that it is Y2Y’s policy that marketable securities be sold upon receipt. Please feel free to review our full gift acceptance policy for further details.
