Maximize your legacy with the gift of securities.

One of the most financially beneficial ways to support The Dementia Society is with a gift of securities.

A gift of publicly traded stocks, bonds or mutual funds in your will is a tax-efficient way for you to donate to the Dementia Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County while making a powerful legacy statement.

Your estate will be issued a charitable tax receipt from The Dementia Society for the fair market value of the shares on the date of the donation by the estate. While your estate may have income taxes to pay on the capital gain on the donated shares, the taxes payable on the capital gain may be offset by the tax savings of the donation.

Please consult a lawyer to outline your wishes to donate securities in your will. In order to leave a charitable gift in your will, it is important that you include our full legal name. And rest assured that your gift is a meaningful way to let people facing dementia in our community know you made a difference.
