Gifts of Stocks and Securities

Give strategically with a gift of stocks or securities. Your powerful gift of transferred stocks or securities will provide you a tax receipt for the full value of the stocks and save more lives than selling your securities and then donating the remaining funds.

Gifts of Property

Provide safe affordable housing in perpetuity by donating land or housing to Blue Door. Your gift will lift thousands of people out of homelessness.

Give in Honour or in Memory

Give a thoughtful gift to celebrate a special occasion or remember a family member, friend, or co-worker. Your donation will be eligible for a tax receipt and your loved one will receive a letter detailing your meaningful gift.
