Give Stock

Giving stocks and bonds is a popular method of donating to HI USA. That’s because stocks and bonds that have increased in value provide even greater tax benefits than gifts of cash. Owners of appreciated assets can obtain substantial tax benefits by transferring those assets directly to HI USA.
