A donation of publicly traded securities such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds and segregated funds to OTCC may provide you with significant tax benefits, while conserving at-risk turtle populations. When you transfer securities that are listed on a public stock exchange directly to OTCC you may not pay tax on capital gains, providing you with a possible tax saving of up to 50 percent. Donors also qualify for a charitable tax receipt based on the asset’s fair market value. In terms of Legacy Giving, you may also wish to consider donating listed securities in your will. Since the capital gains may not be taxed, your estate may realize considerable tax savings that may increase the amount going to your beneficiaries. To make a donation of securities to OTCC, please complete the attached form and mail it to us at the address noted below.
