A Gift of Securities

Thank you for your interest in donating securities to Sechelt Hospital Foundation.  A gift of securities is a cost and tax effective opportunity to transform an asset into immediate and significant support for our community hospital.  By donating publicly traded securities (stock, bonds, segregated funds or mutual funds), you eliminate the capital gains tax that becomes payable if you were to sell the appreciated securities on the market. You can donate stocks through your Will, or while living, and receive tax savings for your estate.

Transferring securities is very easy to do. Simply follow these directions: click here

For more information about donating publicly listed securities, please contact us at 604.885.8637.

Your own financial and legal advisors can also explain the process and help you to decide what’s best for you.

‘Gettin’ Equipt’

The Sechelt Hospital redevelopment project was a $44 Million project to expand and enhance Sechelt Hospital to help meet the anticipated needs of the community to 2030.  The ‘Gettin’ Equipt’ campaign was a joint initiative of the Sechelt Hospital Foundation and the Sunshine Coast Healthcare Auxiliary to raise $2 million dollars for the purchase of specialized furnishings and clinical equipment for the new hospital tower. The generosity of our many donors helped us reach our fundraising goal a year earlier than planned, and examples of the numerous items purchased with the support of our community include:

  • Intensive Care Beds ($48K)
  • Articulating Arm for Trauma Emergency ($48K)
  • Furnishing a room ($50K)
