Home-schooling parents and students can explore the IEEE TryEngineering database to learn about a wide variety of concepts.

Gift of Securities to the IEEE Canadian Foundation – Invest in Scholarships and Grants to Canadians

A gift of securities is a very cost-effective way of supporting the IEEE Canadian Foundation, immediately or though a gift bequest in your will.

With a donation of publicly traded securities you will receive a charitable gift tax receipt for the full market value of your gift. This avoids you incurring Canadian capital gains tax since the securities are transferred intact to the Foundation.

Gifts of securities must be arranged by electronic transfer between your investment broker and the Foundation broker.

As you consider a gift of securities, we can work with you and your advisors to receive your gift. Please request our GIFT of Publicly Traded Securities form, available upon request from the Treasurer (
