If you own publicly traded securities that have increased in value since you purchased them, using them to make your charitable donations can be the most tax effective way to give.
Instead of selling the asset, you transfer it to Ethnos Canada in-kind.
We then sell the gifted asset and provide you an official receipt for income tax purposes.

Benefits

If you sell the securities and donate the cash, you will pay
tax on 50% of the capital gain.
If you donate the securities in- kind, you will pay no tax on the capital gain, and you will receive a charitable receipt for the market value of the securities.
