Gift of securities

A gift of publicly-traded securities, such as stocks, bonds or mutual fund units, is an efficient way to make a gift to the Vancouver Aquarium.


Donating Securities is easy and tax effective

When you make a gift of securities to the Vancouver Aquarium, you’ll have an immediate impact on our conservation, research, education and animal care programs.

Donating publicly traded securities also provides excellent tax benefits when making your charitable gift as you get the combined benefit of paying no tax on the capital gain as well as the tax receipt you’ll receive for your donation.

Transferring your securities to the Vancouver Aquarium is easy. Just download the transfer form and contact your broker with details of the securities you wish to transfer.

Your broker will then contact our agent to arrange the transfer to our account. Once received, our agent will inform us of the gift and the current market value at closing on the day it was received into our account. You will receive a charitable gift receipt for this amount.
