Donate Securities

Maximize the impact of your gift

Donating securities is an efficient way to give: our charity receives the full market value of the securities you donate, while you save on capital gains tax and receive a charitable tax credit at the same time.

Download the Securities Transfer form linked below and follow the steps outlined on this page to initiate a securities donation.

Additional Information:

Securities/shares/stock are considered legally transferred only when our agent Qtrade Direct Investing confirms delivery. The value of the donation receipt is based on the closing price of the shares on the day the shares are received by the Comox Valley Land Trust’s custodian, Qtrade Direct Investing.


Since our formation in 1999, the Comox Valley Land Trust has protected and conserved approximately 600  hectares of ecologically significant land and wildlife habitat. This success is thanks to the vision and generosity of our donors and partners. Your donation to CVLT goes directly to acquiring and protecting the natural wealth of the Comox Valley.
