Women Gaining Ground
Women Gaining Ground brings together professional women in Toronto who are interested in learning more about the social issues affecting our community—particularly as they affect women and their families. Women are given the opportunity to serve both as donors and as key decisionmakers, playing a unique and distinct role in philanthropy and in building a vital base of human caring in our city.
Making a Gift of Securities
Donations of securities allow you to help support your community and receive a significant tax credit. The benefits of donating a gift of securities to United Way are twofold. First, you will receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the donation in the amount of the closing trading price on the day United Way receives the security. Second, your donation is exempt from the capital gains tax that typically applies to the sale of a security.
United Way Toronto has been handling gifts of securities since 1997. We have developed an effective process that is designed to be easy for donors. In addition, we have relationships with all of the major brokerages in Toronto.
