Give stocks, bonds or mutual funds

A gift of appreciated securities like stocks, bonds and mutual funds can be a great way to support our mission to fight for all animals.

When you transfer ownership of securities to the Humane Society of the United States, you will receive a charitable deduction for the full market value and incur no capital gains tax subject to IRS deductible limitations. The process is simple. You need to provide your financial adviser or brokerage firm with the following information:

IRS notes:

  • To receive the appropriate tax deduction, a receipt from a charity is required for gifts over $250.

  • Security gifts are subject to the IRS deduction limits.

  • A security's charitable value is determined by the date the security is received in a charity's designated account.
