Give Stocks, Bonds or Mutual Funds

Humane Society International

  • Thank you for caring. BM Photography

A gift of appreciated securities like stocks, bonds and mutual funds may be an attractive way for you to support our mission to Celebrate Animals and Confront Cruelty.

Note: If you live in the U.S., when you transfer ownership of securities to Humane Society International, 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 advisor or brokerage firm with the following information.

IRS notes for U.S.-based donors

If you live in the U.S., please note:

  • 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 securities charitable value is determined by the date the security is received in a charities-designated account.
