Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of a year. Making a gift of securities offers you the chance to help The Huntington while realizing many important benefits for yourself. For more information on gifts of stock, please email Daria Thomas or call 626-405-2296.


Planned Gifts

Planned gifts enable you to create extraordinary gifts that preserve the future of The Huntington while protecting your assets or creating ways they can better benefit you. To learn about planned or deferred gifts, including bequests, life-income plans, trusts and other options, visit our Planned Giving website.

Using real estate, such as your house, farm or commercial property, to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets and receive significant tax advantages.
