Stay informed of the latest progress in canine health research.
We need your support to fund research that helps dogs live longer, healthier lives.
Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct
transfer to the AKC Canine Health Foundation. Giving a gift of publicly
traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for
more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash.
Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value
of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase
in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also
save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring
ownership rather than selling the stock. Please discuss the benefits and
tax-implications of donating stock with your broker and/or accountant.
If you would like to support canine health research by donating stock, please note the following:

Account Name: AKC Canine Health Foundation
Account Number and DTC Number: please contact us as the account number and DTC number will vary depending on the restrictions on your donation.
Please contact our Development or Finance Director to make stock transfers so that we can properly direct your gift.

Contacting us directly also helps us acknowledge your gift and forward information regarding your tax deduction in a timely manner.
