Stocks & Securities

How it works

Donating stocks, securities or mutual funds directly to NAIT doesn’t just help us – it can also help you receive significant tax savings. In fact, by gifting marketable securities, you can receive more savings than you’d get from a straight gift of cash. 

For each gift we receive, we’ll issue you an official donation receipt that can be claimed to save on taxes. You won’t need to pay tax on any capital gains, and the market value of the gift is determined at the date the securities are received by NAIT.

Making your donation

The easiest way to give is through an electronic transfer from your account to ours by way of a bank or broker. Be sure to consult with your financial advisor about the necessary forms involved in sending securities from one account to another.

Transferring your gift of securities directly to NAIT is the best course of action to avoid unnecessary tax penalties.  All donations of securities for the current tax year must be received no later than December 4  to ensure it is processed by December 31.
