Monthly Donation:

Did you know that monthly giving is an efficient way to support the Monk Seal Foundation?

Monthly donations to the Monk Seal Foundation provide a consistent and reliable stream of income, allowing us to focus more resources on education programs, protection efforts, and capacity building and less on raising the necessary funds. Members like monthly donation options because it’s easy to budget and it feels great to be making a difference for monk seal preservation every month of the year.

Every gift makes an impact on what we can do. If you cannot make a monthly donation, please make a one-time gift. It's the start of a worthwhile relationship!

Leave a Legacy

Give the Gift of Stock:

A stock portfolio is a valuable asset and one that can carry substantial appreciation in value. 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. With your careful planning, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains while support the work of the Monk Seal Foundation. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.

If you would like to invest in the Monk Seal Foundation by donating stock please contact:

Monk Seal Foundation
P.O. Box 10042
Lahaina, HI 96761

Please inform our donor relations team of stock transfers so that we can properly acknowledge your gift and forward information regarding your tax deduction. 

Contact the Monk Seal Foundation by e-mail at donations@monksealfoundation.org.

Your gift of stock can ensure that we can continue our efforts in education and preservation efforts of the Hawaiian monk seal. If you have a specific program that you want to donate your gift of stock to, please note that in your donations. We will send regular updates to you about the progress of the program of your choice.

A Lasting Legacy:

With your continued support of the Monk Seal Foundation, we can create a better future for the Hawaiian monk seal so they can continue to be a wonder of nature for generations to come.

We hope that you’ll consider including a gift to the Monk Seal Foundation in your will or living trust. A charitable bequest has several benefits, including simplicity, flexibility, versatility, and tax relief. To make a charitable bequest, you need a current will or a revocable living trust.

Just a few sentences in your will or trust is all that is needed. The bequest language for the Monk Seal Foundation is: “I give ____ (residue, percentage, or specific amount) to the Monk Seal Foundation, having its principal offices at 3823 Lower Honoapiilani Road #111 Lahaina, HI 96761 for its general purposes to save the monk seal from extinction.” Our tax identification number is 30-0693662. Your gift can be made as a percentage of your estate or you can make a specific bequest by donating a specific amount of cash, securities or property. After your lifetime, the Monk Seal Foundation receives your gift.

We know that when planning a future gift, it is sometimes difficult to determine what will make sense. Emergencies happen and you need to make sure that your family is financially secure first. Including a bequest of a percentage ensures that your gift will remain proportionate no matter how your estate’s value fluctuates.

Contact the Monk Seal Foundation at donations@monksealfoundation.org with any questions about naming the Monk Seal Foundation in your will or living trust.

Memorial and Honor Giving:

A donation to the Monk Seal Foundation is a thoughtful way to honor or remember a loved one. Gifts can be made to recognize a milestone in life or to express the sense of loss of a loved one. Your donation will help us protect the monk seal population and create a world with more respect for endangered species.
