Stocks and Securities

Make a difference today

When you donate publicly-traded securities such as stocks, mutual funds or bonds to Community Forests International, you are supporting both forests and the people connected to them.

Contributing in this way has significant tax advantages, including eliminating the capital gains tax you would have to pay if you sold the shares and then donated the proceeds. You will also receive a charitable tax receipt for 100% of the amount of the donation. It is one of the best ways to maximize your charitable giving.

Giving is easy. Simply fill out and submit our Securities Donation Form. This can be completed by you, or your financial advisor. Email your completed form to Community Forests International’s finance manager, Cindy Spicer at cindy@forestsinternational.org.

You can give now, as part of your estate plans, or both.

Please notify Community Forests International when you make a gift of securities so that we know a gift is on the way. The transfer can take up to four weeks to complete, and your financial institution will notify us once the donation arrives. We immediately sell the securities, regardless of current market conditions. Once the transaction is complete, and the donation is confirmed in our accounts from our broker, you will be notified.

Thank you for considering a gift of securities to Community Forests International to further our work!
