Stocks and Securities

Why Donate Securities?

When you make a gift of securities to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, you’re championing the expert work of community-based organizations in sub-Saharan Africa. By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that you’d have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. You’ll also receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation.

Securities can include stocks and mutual funds. You can give now, or as part of your estate and will planning.

Giving is simple. Consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact. Then ask your broker to transfer your securities to the Stephen Lewis Foundation by completing our securities transfer form. And finally, get in touch and let us know you have made your gift so that we can show our appreciation.
