Registered Retirement Funds (RRSPs/RRIFs):
You have the option to name a charity, AMGH Foundation, as the direct or contingency beneficiary of an RRSP or RRIF.
Securities (stocks, mutual funds, bonds, GICs):
A donation of securities or mutual fund shares is the most efficient way to give charitably. When you sell your shares for cash, you are responsible for the tax due on any realized capital gain, even if you plan to donate the proceeds from the sale. However, when you donate your securities directly to AMGH Foundation, those gains may not be subject to tax. This means your charity receives a larger gift, and you'll benefit from a tax receipt for the full market value of your eligible securities or mutual funds (at the time they are received). For more information, please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency website.
You can explore some of the tax savings benefits of your donation by using our Tax Savings Calculator The Foundation urges donors to seek independent financial and legal advice that pertains to their personal circumstance.
