Make a gift of appreciated securities to WSPA

By donating appreciated securities—stocks, bonds or mutual funds that you’ve held for at least one year—to WSPA you not only generously support our lifesaving work for animals all over the world, but also receive important benefits yourself:

  • You won’t have to pay state or federal capital gains tax on donated securities that have increased in value since you purchased them.
  • When you donate appreciated securities instead of cash, you can make a larger donation to help more animals, at no cost to yourself.
  • You’ll get a charitable tax deduction for the full market value of your donated securities.

How to Donate Securities

Transferring ownership of stock, bonds or mutual funds to WSPA is an easy process.

  1. Start by contacting your broker to discuss your options and make arrangements. 
  2. Let WSPA know about the transfer ahead of time by filling out and sending us a stock donation form.
  3. Then, transfer your securities to us in one of two ways:
  • Electronic transfer - transfer stocks or bonds certificates electronically using the delivery instructions on our securities donation form.
  • Mail – sign the back of your certificates and send mail them to WSPA at: World Society for the Protection of Animals, 89 South Street, 2nd Floor, Boston, MA 02111
