NAMING PLANNED PARENTHOOD IN YOUR WILL

If you would like to make such a gift to Planned Parenthood, your attorney may wish to include language similar to the following:

"I give, devise, and bequeath to Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, Inc. or its successor, now or formerly at 302 North Jackson Street, Milwaukee, WI 53202, a gift of ($_____ or _____ percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate), to be used for its general purposes."

Donate Stocks or Securities

HELP PLANNED PARENTHOOD WITH A GIFT OF STOCK
Donating a highly appreciated asset may allow you to avoid a significant portion of your tax liability while still receiving a charitable deduction.

The gift of an appreciated asset is a powerful way to support Planned Parenthood's work. While this giving strategy has many obvious benefits, no doubt the most important is the satisfaction of knowing that your support helps advance reproductive and sexual health information.

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% 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 of Wisconsin, Inc..

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 contact us by email or phone at 414-289-3733.

If you hold the physical securities, you can directly mail or hand deliver the certificate(s) without any endorsement or assignment to:

Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, Inc.
Attn: Development
302 North Jackson Street
Milwaukee, WI 53202
