Donate Securities

Your generous gift of publicly traded securities and mutual funds will have a significant impact on the lives of thousands of people that turn to North York Harvest every month. Thank you for being someone our community can count on! 

CanadaHelps, our trusted partner, will process the donation of your security on our behalf.
Here’s how it works:
1 – Complete the online pledge
Provide details about your securities or mutual funds donation. 
2 – Send the completed Letter of Direction to your broker authorizing the transfer of your shares to CanadaHelps. 
3 – CanadaHelps will sell the shares and you receive a tax receipt
Once proceeds are received, CanadaHelps will send you a detailed confirmation email with your charitable tax receipt and disburse the proceeds from the sale to our charity.
North York Harvest recommends that you consult with your own financial advisor before initiating any type of donation of securities.

CanadaHelps will notify you by email once it completes the sales and a tax receipt will be sent to you for the value of your donation. The funds will be disbursed to North York Harvest directly by CanadaHelps, deducing a non-commercial administration fee.
