Gifts of Securities

Support greener, more sustainable communities through a gift of publicly traded securities.

Donating appreciated securities is a simple, cost-effective and the most tax-efficient way to make a charitable gift today. Not only do you support Evergreen's mission, you get a tax break and a tax receipt. By donating gifts of stock, you can help us do more to create and sustain green spaces, healthy communities and places for people to work, play and thrive in.

Capital gains are increases in value of securities over the price you paid to buy them. By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that you’d have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds.

Please consult your broker or financial adviser to see if this is a good fit for you.


You can use the form to instruct and authorize your broker to transfer the Stock to Evergreen’s RBC brokerage account.

When the form is complete, please email or fax it to us so we can show our appreciation. If you have any questions or are interested in supporting Evergreen in other ways, such as leaving a gift in your will, please contact Sarah Hillyer for more information.
