Leave a Legacy
There are many ways you can support children’s health and health research at the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba through a planned or legacy gift. Whether you want to reduce taxes within your estate, receive an income for life, reduce taxes on capital gains or receive an immediate tax benefit, there’s an option that’s just right for you.
Securities & Mutual Funds
If you own publicly traded stocks or mutual funds and they have grown in value, you will be taxed on their capital gains when the securities are sold. By donating those securities directly to The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, you can reduce your taxes and make a significant gift at the same time.
A donation receipt is issued for the fair market value of the security at day’s end on the date of transfer. You must have your broker transfer the securities to The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. The gift will not qualify for the elimination of capital gains tax if the securities are sold and the cash then gifted to the Foundation.
- Opportunity – An opportunity to make a significant gift
- Tax Advantages – Eliminates the tax on capital gains.
- Simple and Convenient – Securities are easy to transfer. We provide the forms and directions so that your broker can transfer the shares electronically from your brokerage account to The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.
- Recognition – Your gift can be honoured during your lifetime, should you wish.
By establishing an Endowment Fund, you are declaring yourself a supporter of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba for all time.
Whether your endowment fund is established with a one-time gift today, an estate gift in the future, or a cumulative gift over time, the donated asset is never touched. Instead, income earned by the fund is allocated to the Foundation. It is a powerful, enduring way to give to the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.
