To help fund meaningful and effective development programs around the world, consider donating your publicly traded stocks and mutual funds to Oxfam Canada.
When you donate and transfer your shares directly to Oxfam Canada, you will receive a charitable receipt for the value of your shares without being taxed for the capital gains. You'll also be in a position to significantly help Oxfam's work.
Oxfam Canada gratefully accepts all publicly traded gifts of stock. The actual shares must be transferred to Oxfam Canada, but it is easy to authorize your broker to make an electronic transfer into Oxfam Canada's account by downloading the authorization form at the end of this document, ensuring that the transaction is fast and seamless.
Oxfam supporters with shares in many companies have already benefited from this option, and we invite you to consider this as well. You'll maximize your own benefits, and increase Oxfam Canada's ability to improve the lives of women and men in developing countries.
