OK Humane Society Donations

About Donating to OK Humane Society

We are working to proactively engage the local community in creating and maintaining a “pet friendly” society by promoting pet adoption, spay/neuter, responsible pet ownership, and humane education. Without your donations, we would be unable to fulfill our mission to end the needless euthanasia of adoptable pets in the Oklahoma City community. Our Federal tax ID number is 20-8446621.

Using our secure, online donation form you can make a one-time gift or commit to a monthly (Guardian Club), quarterly, or annual donation of your choice. All gifts are tax-deductible.

We are committed to protecting the privacy of our donors, you can review our policy HERE!

Taxwise Giving Options

Looking to maximize your impact, and your potential tax benefits? Consider creating taxwise gifts from your retirement account or appreciated stocks and securities to support animal welfare in Oklahoma.

 

Give from your IRA

Donors 70.5 or older are eligible to give a tax-free gift of up to $100,000 directly from their IRAs to OK Humane. These gifts can be made whether or not you itemize on your returns, and aren’t recognized as taxable income — meaning they can help you to stay in a lower tax bracket and net some great savings.

To learn more about the potential benefits, and to get started, use this free tool to communicate with your IRA custodian quickly or easily. It takes 10 minutes or less, and is accessible, easy-to-use, and free.

 

Transfer appreciated assets

Many donors prefer to make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or exchange traded funds because it can have a large impact on our mission, while maximizing potential tax benefits by avoiding paying tax on capital gains.

If you would like to transfer your appreciated stocks online, you can use our online tool to walk you through the process in less than 5 minutes. Or, if you would prefer to work directly with your broker, follow the instructions on the tool to access our account information.
