Donation of Securities Forms

A gift of publicly traded securities can provide you with an unexpected means to make a significant contribution to Western at a relatively low-cost to you. You and your broker can electronically transfer these types of gifts into Westerns account by using our forms below.

The Process

1. Forward the completed transfer form to your broker/investment advisor to initiate your electronic transfer of securities. Western cannot initiate this transfer on your behalf.
2. Forward a copy of the completed transfer form to Western for our records.
3. Please be advised that in normal circumstances, the value of the donation receipt will be based on the closing price of the security on the day the securities are received into Western’s brokerage account, in accordance with our Board Policy and Canada Revenue Agency Regulations.
4. Unexpected and /or unidentified transfers make it difficult to issue appropriate tax receipts
