We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that donations will entitle you to a donations tax receipt when filing your tax return. Furthermore, a donation of securities which have risen in value since being purchased by a person, will allow the donor, in most circumstances, to pay only 50% of the capital gains tax otherwise payable, while receiving a donation receipt for the full market value of the of the securities. Your tax advisor would be able to assist you in making a donation of securities to FYFB.
