    1. Please fill out the securities donation form here.
    2. Inform us through email at supportwcscanada@wcs.org.
    3. We will confirm when your transfer has been received.
  • Employer gift matching

    Increase the impact and value of your donation!

    Many companies across Canada match their employees’ donations to eligible non-profit organizations. Some companies also match gifts from spouses, retirees, and Board members.

    Ask your employer’s human resources if your company has a matching gift program and increase the impact of your gift to WCS Canada.

    Please let us know if your company matches your gift and we will be happy to help you with the next steps. Contact us at supportwcscanada@wcs.org.
