Gifts of Securities
A gift of securities – stocks, bonds or mutual fund – is one of the most cost- effective ways to support United Way. For example, capital gains tax is not applied to a donation of shares of publicly-held securities. We welcome calls from financial advisors, donors and corporate leaders to discuss individual interests and how we can best direct your gift. You can also download our gift of securities form to use with your broker. Please contact Marg Rose, Director of Philanthropy at (250) 220-7365 for information and assistance.
Major and legacy gifts can literally change the lives of hundreds – even thousands – of vulnerable children, families and seniors in our community. There are many ways United Way can work closely with you as your social impact advisor to maximize the impact of your gift. Transformational gifts include:
By sponsoring an event or community initiative with United Way, we can help you achieve your philanthropic goals.
