Donate stock to GSE

Making a stock donation to support Global Sanctuary for Elephants (GSE) enables us to provide elephants with the only healthy captive alternative: a life of sanctuary. Support GSE by making a charitable gift in stock.

How can I donate stock to GSE?

Donating stock is safe and easy. We accept donations in publicly traded, domestic common stocks. We are continually in the process of adding support for new assets to donate, so please check back soon for more giving options.

Using the donation form to the right, making a charitable gift of stock is a quick process:

  1. Select your stock ticker and confirm the company name in the donation form
  2. Enter your gift amount
  3. Type in your email and address info for the receipt
  4. Enter your brokerage account information
  5. Virtually sign & make your gift!

Upon making a donation, you will receive an email notification from The Giving Block that your gift is being processed. In some circumstances, you may need to take action with your broker. The email will have instructions on any next steps.

Charitable donations of stock are processed safely and typically within 6-8 business days with The Giving Block in partnership with Renaissance Charitable Foundation. Processing times can be longer during December or when dealing with restricted stock.

Is my stock donation to GSE tax deductible?

Yes! Stock donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to give to charity. Your stock donation is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law; if you pay taxes in the U.S. By making a charitable gift, you may also be eligible to significantly reduce what you would otherwise owe in capital gains taxes.

As with any tax-related questions, be sure to consult with a qualified, professional tax advisor. You can also reach out to the Giving Block Client Services with questions.

Global Sanctuary for Elephants exists to provide safe spaces for captive elephants to heal, emotionally and physically. Space, autonomy, and companionship are paramount in allowing elephants to rediscover themselves. To date, we have rescued nine elephants to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil, and have a number of elephants on the waiting list to arrive. It is only with your help that we can provide vast spaces and lifesaving care for elephants who have faced decades of mistreatment and neglect. Your gift allows us to expand the habitats and rescue more elephants.
