Donate Stocks or Securities to Planned Parenthood of Nassau County (PPNC)

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 PPNC'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.



Your gift 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 a percentage of your deduction to adjust your 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 PPNC. Please consult with your tax advisor regarding the proper reporting of your gift.
