Why Donate Securities?

Give a gift that makes an immediate impact and receive tax benefits when you support Nikkei Place

A gift of securities to Nikkei Place Foundation can have an immediate impact, as well as let you take advantage of the tax benefits that come with donating publicly traded securities.

Donating publicly traded securities allows you to eliminate any capital gains tax that you would have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. You will also receive a charitable tax receipt for the full market value of the securities you donate.

Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, flow-through shares, and employee stock options.

You can donate now, or as part of your estate and will planning.
