Gift of securities
Reasons to give
Every Camp Ooch donation helps kids affected by childhood cancer just be kids. Our programs bring magic, joy and new experiences to kids and families in Ontario throughout the year.
Your support will help us expand across the province, so that we can bring the social cure for cancer closer to families in need.
There is no capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated securities, meaning there are substantial tax incentives. By donating appreciated stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds or flow through shares to Camp Ooch, your donation is tax free and you’ll receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities.
