The Benefits of Gifting Securities: Join LAPT today!

It’s that time of year!

Consider joining our citizen-funded initiative to honour Terry’s inspirational legacy permanently on Toronto’s waterfront.


Gifting securities is a cost-effective way to make a donation with a substantial tax incentive. By donating securities, donors pay no tax on capital gains, receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities, and reduce their taxes. The completion of a simple form is all it takes to make an electronic gift of securities to the Toronto Foundation.

The benefits of donating securities include:

• Satisfaction of seeing your gift put to good use today

• A charitable tax receipt

• No capital gains tax paid
