Donating Securities

For some people, donating publicly listed securities such as stocks, bonds and mutual fund units is a convenient, tax-effective way to make a charitable gift. You will receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of your donation.

Please talk to your tax or wealth advisor to determine if donating securities is right for you. To make a gift, simply complete and send our easy-to-use Securities Transfer Form.

Endowment and Major Gift Donations

Canada’s History is honoured to receive major donations from Canadian individuals, businesses, foundations, and families. Gifts to our annual fund are essential for ensuring Canada’s History continues delivering the publications, diverse stories, and online resources Canadians depend on.

Contributions to the Canada’s History Endowment Fund are securely invested and managed. The fund’s capital is kept intact and earned revenue is funneled directly into our educational and youth programs, magazines and special publications, and national awards programs.

Planned Legacy Giving

Planned gifts to Canada’s History provide sustaining support for our important work in making Canada’s past relevant, engaging, and accessible for all Canadians. Your legacy gift will help ensure the stories we tell of Canada and the programs we offer will reach new audiences for generations to come.

For more information on Endowment, Major Gift and Planned Giving, please email or phone Kathy Penner at 431.887.1867 or 1.888.816.0997, ext. 210.
