Other ways to give

A donation of publicly traded securities is an easy way to support your favorite organization through your generosity while also generating tax savings. By transferring your shares directly to the OSM, you will save on paying a portion of taxes on the capital gain and, additionally, receive a tax receipt.

Contact us by email at or by phone at 514-842-0017 to confirm your intention to donate securities.

Did you know that there is no longer a deadline to apply for your tax credit for a first large cultural donation? The Quebec government offers a 25% credit for any first individual donation to a cultural organization of $5,000 to $25,000, such that the actual cost of the donation represents a value of less than a quarter of the total amount. An exceptional opportunity to seize, and to boost the impact of your donation to the OSM!

Please note that only one such return may be declared in an individual’s lifetime and that the donation must be made in cash, or in several instalments in the same taxation year.

Consult the Revenu Québec website to learn more.

Ask an expert: The OSM strongly encourages you to consult a specialized professional to ensure that your objectives take your profile into account and that your decision is in line with your financial and taxation situation.
