Benefits You Receive from Your Gift of Stock

Your gift of securities will entitle you to a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize your tax returns. And in the case of appreciated securities, you may deduct the full fair market value of your gift once you have held onto the securities for at least one year. You may use your deduction up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income and are permitted to carry any unused deduction forward for up to five additional years. In addition, you will avoid paying capital gains tax on all stock that you chose to donate to Planned Parenthood Federation of America. 

How Can I Make a Gift of Stock?

  • You can authorize your stock broker or your bank to complete the transfer process. Please instruct your broker or bank to call 800-430-4907 to speak with someone on our donor services team.
  • If you hold the physical securities, you can directly mail or hand deliver the 
    certificate(s) without any endorsement or assignment to
Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc. 
Attn: Customer Service 
434 West 33rd Street
New York, New York 10001

Please enclose a letter stating the purpose of your gift (for example, "to benefit all of the national programs of PPFA"). And in a separate envelope, please include a signed stock power form for each gift. (Please note that except for your signature exactly as your name appears on the stock certificate, the stock power form should be blank.) 

You may print out a stock power form here, or receive one from your bank or broker.
