Donating Securities

Giving securities is an easy and tax effective way to contribute to our annual fund or operating endowment.

When you donate securities to us directly you receive a tax receipt for the full amount of your donation and won’t pay the standard 50% capital gains. There is no minimum gift and we accept all publicly traded securities (securities listed or posted for trading on Canadian and major international exchanges). Securities include stocks, trust units, mutual fund units, and bonds.

Making a Bequest

Remembering the CAG via a bequest in your Will is one of the most important and meaningful gifts you can make.

Your legacy will ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy the CAG in the same way that you do. Your generosity will help to guarantee that we can continue to support artistic experiment and present a world-class program to a wide and diverse range of audiences across Vancouver and the province.

Anyone can leave a legacy to the CAG and every gift, whatever the amount, will make a difference to what we can achieve, helping secure a strong future for an exciting, dynamic and ground-breaking organization.

If you would like more information about donating securities or how to leave a legacy to the CAG, including suggested wording for your Will or any other queries, please contact +1 604 681 2700 or email
