Donate Stock and Securities

Making a gift of stock or securities can benefit you as well as Philadelphia’s homeless animals.

Donating stock you’ve held for more than 12 months is a tax-smart way to support the causes you care about. It enables you to avoid capital gains taxes and allows you to claim the full, fair-market value on the date of the gift as a charitable donation, up to the overall amount allowed by the IRS.

This is an excellent vehicle for stock that has appreciated substantially in value. Proceeds from the sale of your donated stock will be used by PAWS to care for the city’s at-risk pets.

If you are interested in making a gift of stock, please contact Lauren Hanak, Major Gifts Officer, at 267-320-6429 or lauren.hanak@phillypaws.org.

Donations to PAWS, a 501(c)3 organization, are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Your estate planner, financial advisor, or accounting professional can advise you on the tax benefits, financial considerations, and savings associated with donating stock and securities to PAWS.
