When you make a gift of stocks and securities to Habitat Manitoba, you will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full amount of your gift in accordance with CRA guidelines.
Through our Planned Giving Program, many donors have included a donation of stocks, bonds and/or securities in their Will. This can lessen the tax burden for your heirs. Your estate will be excluded from paying tax on any capital gains generated by way of a donation in this manner. The more securities and other assets you leave to charity, the larger the tax credit for your estate, thus, fewer taxes are being paid. CRA guidelines allows you to donate up to 100% of your estate’s net income to charity. By donating stocks, bonds and/or securities, you are helping Habitat build homes for families in need of safe, decent and affordable housing.
