Giving the Gift of Securities

 

You can make a tax-smart donation to support the Royal Alexandra Hospital by donating securities. 

It is a fast and easy way to donate. The area of care you designate receives the donation, and because the Royal Alex is one of the largest and busiest hospitals in western Canada, the healthcare of all Albertans also benefits.

HOW DOES IT WORK? 

The process is simple.

To make a gift of securities to the Royal Alexandra Hospital, simply follow these instructions:

1. Download, complete and send the Donation Form for Gifts of Publicly Traded Securities to the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation and contact us to let us know to expect your donation. This form does not initiate transfer of securities, but it is an important first step in the process.

2. Contact your broker or financial advisor to initiate the transfer of your securities to the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation.

3. Once the transfer is complete, we will promptly send you the tax receipt for the value of your gift.

The best way to ensure that your charitable plans reflect your personal situation and long-term goals is to consult your legal, financial or income tax advisor.

If you have any questions about making a donation with a gift of securities, or how your gift will be recognized, please contact Terry Tobin at (780) 735-5061 or ttobin@royalalex.org
