A Gift of Stock is A Gift that Keeps Giving

Donations to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation can take many forms – including gifts of stock. For Mr. James Inaba, it was the perfect way for him to give back in appreciation for the cardiac care he’s received at the Health Sciences Centre.
“When I found out I was able to make a gift of some of my stock, it was a great solution for me,” he said. “First of all, I was credited the full market value of the stock when I donated it, and,” he added grinning, “I didn’t trigger any capital gains on the increased value of the stock, which was a real bonus at tax time.”
Thanks to Mr. Inaba’s donation, patients will benefit with access to the latest in cardiac care equipment to heal hearts at home, making a gift of stock a gift that really does keep giving.
