Donating securities

Did you know that securities listed on the stock exchange that are transferred directly to the Lise Watier Foundation are exempt from capital gains tax?

Would you like to make a donation of securities?

This is a fiscally advantageous way to support the cause, since you avoid the capital gains tax that you would normally have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds.

In addition, you receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities when you receive them. These tax breaks make it possible to significantly reduce the cost of your donation.

Contact us or consult your broker!

Contact us at 514 507-6881 or consult your tax advisor or broker to optimize the tax benefits, then download and complete the Securities donation confirmation form to make the transfer.


Graduate of the Let’s Start Up Program

The Lise Watier Foundation offers the Let’s Start Up program in Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, the Laurentians and Montérégie. More than 200 women a year are committed to taking action through the Let’s Start Up program. They graduate with a better understanding of their strengths and skills, as well as the knowledge and tools to implement their professional project. Women thus begin a new journey towards financial independence through entrepreneurship, a return to school or a more fulfilling job.
