Other Ways to Give
Make the decision today to support Canadian writers. Create a trust while you are living or include the Writers’ Trust in your will—a planned gift is a demonstration of support, and can often secure significant tax benefits. Planned gifts can include bequests, stocks and securities, gifts-in-kind, the establishment of a trust, and many other options.
Gifts of Stock & Securities
Donating publicly traded stock and securities is a tax-smart way to support Canadian writers. You receive a tax receipt for the full appreciated value of a donation of publicly traded stock or securities, and are not subject to any capital gains tax. You receive a greater tax benefit than if you gave cash.
