A donation of securities may offer a tax advantage to you. You will not be taxed on the capital gains accrued on securities that have been donated to a registered charity. You will also receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation.
PuSh makes it easy to donate gifts of securities. Your broker will transfer the securities directly from your account to ours. We sell the shares immediately upon receipt and provide a charitable tax receipt for the value at the date of transfer.
To request a Transfer of Securities form, please contact Individual Giving Officer, Hannah Bellamy at email@example.com or 604.605.8284 ext 206.
Please consult your broker or financial adviser to determine if this is a good option for you.
A bequest is a gift left in your will. You can gift a specific dollar amount, a piece of property such as a home or securities or a share of your estate. Bequests can reduce your estate taxes – and provide a unique opportunity to give more than you could in your lifetime. You can give as much or as little as you want, and you can always change your mind.
Bequests don’t have to be complicated, you can simply add a phrase about your intention using our legal name and Canadian charitable number: PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, #82954 9948 RR0001.
I give the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, charitable number #82954 9948 RR0001 the sum of $___.
Or, you can leave a residual gift to us – a percentage of what’s left of your estate after you take care of your loved ones. This protects your intent while adapting to inflation or any other change.
I give PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, charitable number #82954 9948 RR0001, ___ per cent of the residue of my estate.
We want to thank you
If you’ve already arranged a legacy gift you are under no obligation to tell us about it, but we would love to acknowledge you. You may inspire others to do the same!
If you want to remain anonymous, we will respect your privacy.
