Give Stocks, Bonds or Mutual Funds

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.

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 advisor or brokerage firm with the following information.

Method of Stock Delivery (choose one):

Electronic delivery through Depository Trust Company (DTC)
DTC# 0443 Pershing, LLC
Account Name: The Humane Society of the United States
Our account: N7M100467

Physical stock certificates
Mail securities and required documents to:
BNY Mellon Capital Markets, LLC.
500 Grant Street, Suite 0475
Pittsburgh, PA 15258

If the security is still in the your name, a letter of authorization is needed giving up ownership of the security.

Mutual Funds and Foreign Security Gifts
Please contact Jorja Watts, BNY Capital Markets, 412-234-0439 to coordinate delivery.   

We encourage you to alert us in advance with the details of your appreciated gift so we can properly acknowledge your donation. Electronic security transfers do not necessarily provide us with your information.

Please provide the following to Steve Maughan at smaughan@humanesociety.org or 301-258-3004.

  • Your Name, address and contact information
  • Name of the security
  • Number of shares and estimated value

Mutual Fund Donations

Mutual fund companies have a variety of different rules when transferring ownership of shares. Please contact your mutual fund company and Steve Maughan at smaughan@humanesociety.org or 301-258-3004 to facilitate the process.

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