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, the most important is undoubtedly the satisfaction of knowing that your support helps advance reproductive health care, education, and advocacy.

Benefits You Receive from Your Gift of Stock

Your gift of securities may 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 may be permitted to carry any unused deduction forward for up to five additional years.

In addition, you may avoid paying capital gains tax on all stock that you choose to donate to Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida.

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 941.365.3913 x3000 to speak with someone on our donor services team.
