Donate Stock/Securities to DHA

If you would like to make a donation by electronically transferring stock/securities to Delaware Humane Association (DHA), 701 A Street, Wilmington, DE 19801, please contact your stockbroker with instructions to make the transfer. 

Provide your broker with the following information in order to facilitate the transfer:

WSFS Bank’s Broker-dealer: INVEST Financial Corporation
DTC #:
0226
Account Number:
  WL9-039438

Please ensure that your stockbroker knows to transfer the stock outright to DHA, rather than selling the stock first and then transferring the proceeds. Otherwise, you could incur a capital gains tax on the appreciated securities. 

The value of your donated stock is the average of the high and low value on the date of the gift.  In considering when you might wish to transfer stock, be advised that the gift date for tax purposes is the day the securities are transferred directly to DHA.

Please contact Patrick Carroll, Executive Director, and inform him of your gift and he will let WSFS Bank know to anticipate the transfer. Please include the name of the security being transferred, the number of shares being transferred, the expected date of transfer, and from whom the transfer is being made.

Patrick can be reached at pcarroll@dehumane.org or (302) 571-8171, ext. 302.
