Give a meaningful gift with extra tax benefits!

The benefits of donating a gift of securities to the YMCA are two-fold.

  • You’ll receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the donation in the amount of the closing trading price on the day the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth receives the security.
  • And, your donation is exempt from the capital gains tax that typically applies to the sale of a security.
