The Philanthropy Department partners with inspired and passionate supporters who make significant investments in the work of The HSUS—now and for the future. With your personal Philanthropy representative, you can explore ways to make the greatest difference for animals through leadership support, planned giving, estate planning, and major gifts. Our expert staff can also answer your questions about donations of stock, charitable gift annuities and matching gifts.
