Support Tusk (USA)
Tusk’s aim is always to maximize funds reaching the field. On average over 80% of net funds raised are allocated in grants to projects and with your gift we hope to increase our overall support. Each of the projects we support is carefully monitored to ensure your money is being effectively used. Please consider the pathways below in making your donation.

Direct Donation via Check
All donations to Tusk in the United States are tax deductible to the extent allowed by US law. Please make all checks payable to Tusk USA, Inc and post to the Tusk USA office at 525 East 89th Street, Courtyard Office, New York, NY 10128
Using appreciated investment assets such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds can be a tax efficient way to make a gift. If you have an appreciated security that you have owned for more than one year, you may deduct its current market value, regardless of your original cost. Furthermore, no capital gains tax is due on the appreciated amount. So your gift of appreciated securities can cost you less than a comparable gift of cash. The IRS allows you to claim charitable contributions for gifts of appreciated assets up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income in any year. If you cannot use all of the deduction in one year, you may carry over the remainder for the next five years.
Please call us before you sell profitable investment assets.
