ASPCA Heroes: Major Giving

ASPCA Heroes: Major Giving

There are many ways to make a Major Gift, and we are happy to help you find the right opportunity that both meets your philanthropic wishes and supports our mission. The ASPCA receives no public financial support and relies on its major donor partners to accomplish its efforts to alleviate animal homelessness and cruelty across the nation. We hope you find this information to be helpful, and we’d like to thank you for considering a gift to the ASPCA.

Should you wish to make a major gift of $10,000 or more, please contact us to learn more about the many available ASPCA giving options, and to discuss which option is best for you at this time. You may be able to give more than you expected!

Types of Major Gifts

Cash Gifts

Gifts of cash immediately impact ASPCA programs and provide you the donor with the highest tax deduction.
 

Gifts of Stock

Through a gift of appreciated securities, you the donor will receive one of the most significant tax breaks from the IRS. A donation of securities is a powerful way to support the ASPCA, providing you with the satisfaction of advancing the lifesaving work of the ASPCA while you receive the following benefits:

  • You will pay no capital gains tax on the securities you choose to donate
  • You will receive an immediate tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, regardless of what you initially paid to purchase them
  • Your gift of stock, like cash gifts, can be directed to the general support of the ASPCA or to a specific project

Gifts of Personal Property

By donating a piece of personal property (i.e. an item or collection of art, books, furniture), you are making a valuable contribution to the ASPCA and will also receive a tax deduction.

The donated item can be sold by the ASPCA or can be held for sale at a later date. You, the donor, will immediately receive an income tax deduction for the appraised value of the donated article and no capital gains tax will be assessed. This is the perfect way to make a difference for your charity without making a monetary transaction. For more detailed information on this type of donation, please consult your financial advisor or the IRS directly.
