Gifts of appreciated securities

Support HUMAA with gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares


Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares can be a tax-advantaged way to provide immediate support for the HUMAA. Gifts of any size benefit the Association..


As with any gift to HUMAA, you may direct your gift to the area of your choice.


By giving to HUMAA appreciated securities that you’ve held for more than a year, you receive a double tax benefit:

  • You avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation that would be due upon sale.

  • You can receive a charitable income tax deduction for the current fair market value of the property - up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income.

  • You can carry forward any unclaimed portion of the deduction for up to five additional years, subject to the annual limit.

Gifts at year-end

If you wish to make a gift of securities for the current tax year, start early to ensure that your gift will be completed by December 31. While HUMAA receives some electronic transfers within days of when the gift was initiated, longer delays are possible, especially at year-end. Gifts of mutual funds take longer than stock gifts, often several weeks. Contact your broker for their deadline to complete transfers by year-end.

Notifying HUMAA

HUMAA often receives gifts of securities without any donor-identifying information. If you plan to transfer securities, please contact the foundation and provide the following information:

  • Type/number of shares you are transferring

  • Approximate date of transfer

  • Gift designation instructions

Thank you.
