Gifts of Stock or Securities

Donate to Howard Brown

Transferring stock or securities is an excellent way to support the life-saving mission of Howard Brown Health, and provides significant benefits such as:

  • A charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted long-term securities.
  • Elimination of capital gains tax that would ordinarily become due if you sell the appreciated securities on the open market and donated the proceeds of the sale to Howard Brown Health Center.

1.  Please notify our development team in advance of stock transfers so that we can instruct our broker to accept your gift, track it, and acknowledge it properly for income tax purposes. You may email or fax to:
