donate stocks & Bonds
By donating securities, your generous contribution will accelerate essential funding for salmon habitat restoration, salmon research and environmental education for students and life-long learners in the Hood Canal watershed.
Giving a gift of publicly traded stock is both a way to propel the mission of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation forward and can provide greater tax benefits than making a cash donation. By donating stock, you may avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock and you can save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
You can give stock that has increased in value and you have owned for more than one year to the PFF. Please use the information below to make a gift of stock:
Brokerage House: XXXXX
Account Name: Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group
(Tax ID# 91-1518294)
Account Number: XXXX-XXXX
DTC Number: XXXX
Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock.
Please also contact our development team to notify us of the transfer so we can properly acknowledge your contribution. We can provide you or your financial advisor with any additional information necessary to make the donation.
A lasting gift for generations of salmon & communities in the Pacific Northwest.
By giving or leaving your bonds to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, you may be able to reduce, or even avoid, income taxes. Savings bonds are normally taxed when they’re cashed in, reissued to another person, or reach their final maturity. Although savings bonds cannot be directly donated to a charitable organization during your lifetime, there are three easy ways to use your bonds to support the pulmonary fibrosis community:
1. Redeem your savings bonds and use the cash equivalent to make a gift supporting the PFF. By redeeming your savings bonds, you will trigger a tax liability to you on the interest income, but if you itemize, you will receive the benefit of a charitable tax deduction to help offset the additional taxable income.
2. Leave the bonds to the PFF through your will. Because we are a tax-exempt organization, we will receive the full value of the bonds, which could have otherwise been reduced by up to 35 percent for income taxes. For a small percentage of people, federal estate taxes might also reduce the amount available.
3. Leave the bonds upon your death to a charitable remainder trust. Lifetime payments will benefit your chosen loved ones and then the balance will support our mission.
