Wills and Planned Gifts

Join the Legacy Society
A Gift Through Your Will or Living Trust

You can ensure future generations’ access to reproductive health care by putting PPMHV in your will or trust, as well as life income gifts. Or, you can establish an annuity which can provide income back to you. PPMHV's Legacy Society was established to recognize these gifts.  Including PPMHV in your will or estate plans is one of the most meaningful ways to support family planning and reproductive rights. By supporting the future of PPMHV in this way, you are creating a legacy for the principles and values most important to you.

 

Naming Planned Parenthood in Your Will

Your will affirms, honors, and protects what matters most to you. Through a specific bequest, you can name a particular dollar amount, or through a residuary bequest, you can give all or part of what is remaining after payment of debts, expenses, and specific bequests. 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 the Mid-Hudson Valley, Inc. or its successor, now or formerly at 178 Church Street, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601, a gift of ($_____ or _____ percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate), to be used for its general purposes."

 

The I.R.S recognizes Planned Parenthood of the Mid-Hudson Valley, Inc. as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Our federal tax ID number is 14-1344810.

Individual financial situations vary, and PPMHV recommends that each person considering a planned gift consult with his or her financial and/or legal advisor.

For information on the Legacy Society, making a bequest, and other specially planned gifts, please call Megan Laurelli, Assistant Director of Development at 845-471-1530 X1117 or e-mail [email protected].

IRA Charitable Rollover Gift

Even though the money is coming from your IRA, it is excluded from your taxable income!  

To qualify for this benefit, you must be 70 ½ years or older. Married couples can each donate up to $100,000 from their individual IRA accounts. If you have questions or need more information about a gift to PPMHV, please call 845-471-1530 X1117 or email [email protected]

Stock Donations 

 

Help Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley with a Gift of Stock

Donating an 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 healthcare in the mid-Hudson Valley.

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 Mid-Hudson Valley.

Donation FAQ's

Are Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley (PPMHV) and Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) the same thing?

No we are not. PPMHV is an affiliate/member of PPFA.

PPMHV provides reproductive healthcare across the mid-Hudson Valley region, as well as sexuality education and advocacy. PPFA is a national organization and does not provide direct medical services.

PPFA does set medical standards for all Planned Parenthood affiliates in the United States and, in so doing, ensures the high quality healthcare offered by its affiliates.

How will PPMHV use my contributions?

Your contributions support the general operations of PPMHV. They are especially important to help us provide healthcare to women, men, and teens who cannot afford to pay for all or part of their care. Your gifts also support our education and advocacy programs.

What happens after I make my first gift to PPMHV?

All of us at PPMHV truly value your support and want to make sure that you get regular updates about the important work that you help fund. PPMHV donors receive our quarterly newsletter and can expect special communications from us throughout the year.

Are any of my contributions to PPMHV tax deductible?

Yes. PPMHV is a 501(c)(3) organization and your gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

If I want more information on PPMHV's programs or finances, what should I do?

We're here to answer all of your questions. Call our Development Office at 845-471-1530 ext. 1117  or email us at [email protected].

What else can I do to help?

These may include special events or administrative support.
