Gifts of Stock

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of stock are a wonderful way to give to the pets in need at the Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County.

If you have stock that has appreciated in value and you’ve owned those shares for more than a year, you might consider donating the shares directly to the Humane Society. A gift of appreciated securities may provide significant benefits to you as a contributor, such as:

  • Eliminating capital gains taxes on any increase in value—taxes you would pay if you sold the stock.
  • Entitling you to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the current fair market value of the securities, regardless of their lower original cost, if you itemize.

All you have to do is provide your financial advisor or stockbroker with the following information:

  • The Bank of New York Mellon
    DTC #8275
    FFC:  A/C  10380401920 N/O Humane Society Tacoma Pierce Gift Sub

Transfers occasionally arrive in our account without a donor name attached. Please notify the shelter of the pending transfer by contacting Ashley Taulbee, Director of Development and Marketing, at (253) 284-5833 or
