Gift of Securities

Looking to make a tremendous impact in the lives of children and families in your community? Consider a gift of shares, mutual funds, or publicly traded securities.

It’s simple. Making a charitable donation to KidsAbility Foundation is easy and one of the most efficient ways to give without affecting your personal cash flow. And, this type of gift provides you with a tax deduction in the taxation year you make the gift.

By transferring your gift of shares directly to KidsAbility Foundation,

  • you can reduce your overall taxes
  • receive a tax deduction in the year you make your gift,
  • and take advantage of a special tax rule which reduces capital gains taxes to zero for donated investments that are qualifying securities. 

To make your gift of shares or publicly traded securities, complete this Gift of Shares Form and send to your financial advisor which will provide your consent to make this type of gift to KidsAbility Foundation. A donation receipt is issued for the fair market value of the shares.
