Gift of Securities

You can maximize your philanthropic gift to PEI FVPS by donating securities!

By giving securities such as publicly traded shares or mutual funds, in-kind to a registered charity, you pay zero capital gains tax on the appreciated value of your securities. That means it is even more tax-advantageous for you to make a gift of stock rather than cash.
