The Ottawa Mission gratefully accepts gifts in the form of securities.

Donations of publicly listed securities are exempt from the capital gains tax, making this one of the most attractive ways you can help provide food, shelter and hope to people in need. If you donate securities to the Ottawa Mission Foundation directly, you will not pay any capital gains tax normally associated with the sale of securities. And you will receive a tax receipt for the full value of the donation.

To make a gift of securities and take advantage of the tax savings, please complete our Gift of Securities form and forward a copy to your brokerage firm as well as to Christina Hunter Cadieux, Planned Giving Officer, at or by fax at 613-234-7498. Your form can also be mailed to:
