SFU suggests that alumni donate BCE shares to avoid tax hike

November 27, 2007

Bell Canada shareholders are not looking forward to the tax increase they will face next year when the company goes private.  Simon Fraser University, among other non-profit organizations, is suggesting that shareholders donate their shares to cut their taxes and "do some good" as well.  BCE is one of the most widely held stocks in Canada.  SFU included an article in a recent newsletter sent to 16,000 alumni, and has since received $45,000 in stock donations.
