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:
Upon completion, you will receive an email from CanadaHelps confirming all the details of your pledge.
2 – Complete the provided Letter of Direction form and send it to your financial advisor or investment firm authorizing the transfer of your shares to CanadaHelps.
3 – Once shares are sold, CanadaHelps will send you a confirmation email with your charitable tax receipt* and disburse the proceeds to our charity. 
*To ensure your gift qualifies for a 2023 tax receipt, complete your mutual funds donation before December 8th. All other securities donations before December 15th.
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.
