Fiera Capital Foundation
The Fiera Capital Foundation is designed to offer a more focused and strategic approach to philanthropy, while also providing for efficient tax and estate planning.
While many generous individuals embrace the idea of creating a philanthropic legacy, most charitable giving is done without the benefit of a long-term plan. As a result, donations are typically made on an ad hoc basis. By implementing a long-term giving plan, the impact of your donations will multiply and create a powerful legacy.
Features of Fiera Capital Foundation

Flow through donations
You can also use the Foundation for your annual giving by flowing through (donating) appreciated securities and units of Fiera Capital pooled funds to the Foundation. The Foundation liquidates the securities with no capital gains tax impact, and the proceeds are sent to your charities of choice.

- Incorporate a variety of different assets into your plan to support your charitable giving in a tax-advantaged manner
- Support various charities close to home, across the country, and/or around the world
- Decide on how you want your legacy to be managed well into the future
