How to Donate

We offer a variety of giving options, making it simple, and each donation will receive a tax receipt.

To Donate by Credit Card:

  • One-time donations or recurring donations can all be made online
  • If you would like your donation to be anonymous, select “I wish my donation to remain anonymous” on the checkout page
*Please note that gifts made by credit card are subject to service charges. We reserve the right to use a portion of your gift to offset these costs, resulting in a lower addition to your fund. Thank you for your generosity!

Stocks & Securities:

Donation of Stocks & Securities, which can be made immediately or written into your Will, offer many tax benefits including:

  • Elimination of all capital gains taxes
  • Immediate tax relief with a charitable tax receipt
  • Immediate and significant benefit to the Oakville Community Foundation or your Family Fund

To donate publicly traded securities:

Step 1:

Please complete this form and ensure a copy is forwarded to both the identified Foundation Broker, RBC Dominion Securities at and to The Foundation at to ensure the transaction is received by the Foundation. It is very important to provide a completed form to The Foundation because it provides direction as to which Fund the donation should be applied to, and supports the issuance of a donation tax receipt*.

*the tax receipt will be issued to the Donor based on the closing market price of the security, on the day the securities are received by RBC Dominion Securities.

Step 2:

If your publicly traded securities are held at a Full Service Broker please contact your broker directly to initiate the transaction and complete the required paperwork.


If your publicly traded securities are held at Direct Investing Brokerage you will be required to reach out to them directly to initiate the transaction. Each Brokerage has a different process required for the donation of shares to a registered charity. Below are instructions for a selection of Brokerages where the information was readily available.  This is not a complete list of Direct Investing Brokerages. For accurate and up to date instructions we recommend that you contact your Direct Investing Brokerage directly.
