Help Planned Parenthood with a Gift of Stock
Operated by: Planned Parenthood Advocates of Iowa
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 Advocates of Iowa.
