Your stocks might get pulses racing on Wall Street, but here at the Connecticut Humane Society, they keep hearts beating, tails wagging and purrs rumbling.

A gift of appreciated securities held for more than one year may provide significant benefits to you as a contributor, benefits which may include:

  • a charitable tax deduction
  • eliminating a capital gains tax
  • claiming a loss from a stock sale
  • helping you reduce your income or estate taxes

Consult your financial planner or tax adviser for assistance in evaluating the tax advantages which might be available to you.

Please fill out the form below to notify CHS of your gift. Stock donations transfer to CHS’ account with no accompanying donor information. In order for CHS to identify your gift and appropriately acknowledge your generosity, you will need to provide the gift details in advance. The brokerage information for processing the transfer will follow in an automated email that you will receive after you submit the form.
