Stocks and Securities

Give the gift of stocks and securities

Gifts of securities are a cost-effective opportunity to transform your assets into immediate and significant support of CCO’s mission to proclaim the Gospel. By donating stocks, mutual funds, or stock options, you eliminate the capital gains tax, and you receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation. A gift of securities allows you to make a more significant gift for less while growing your support to proclaim Jesus and building leaders for the renewal of the world. 

To make a gift of stocks or securities to CCO Canada:

Please visit Canada Helps, a charity that helps Canadian charities like ourselves with donation processing, at canadahelps.org. Search for “Catholic Christian Outreach” and open our page. There is an option to click “Donate Securities”. The website will then guide you through the required information, including the name of the security, the number of shares you wish to donate, and information from your broker or investment platform. You will also be asked for your personal information to be able to receive a tax receipt from Canada Helps for the full value of the donation.

We ask that you would give Canada Helps permission to share your personal information with CCO to keep our records complete.

If you have any questions about donating securities or stocks, or to confirm any instructions or preferences for your gift, please reach out to our Donations team at donations@cco.ca or 613-736-1999, extension 567.
