Give a Gift of Appreciated Securities

  • Avoid capital gains taxes on the stock.
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of stock at the time of the gift.
  • Know your money is invested in a cause important to you.

The stock must have been held by you for at least one year and must be transferred to PRF’s account prior to being sold in order to avoid capital gains taxation. Your financial advisor can arrange the gift directly to PRF.  Click here for an illustration of the benefits of giving a gift of appreciated securities.  If you plan on donating stock certificate form prior to year-end, please have the mailing postmarked by December 31.

For more information on planned giving, stock transfer instruction or any other assistance we can provide, please contact Robyn Glazer Milbury, Esq. Planned Giving Officer at 978-535-2594 or plannedgiving@progeriaresearch.org.

Donate your Car 

Car, truck, and boat donations are tax deductible for the full sales amount of your vehicle, a value that will likely exceed the credit you’d receive for a trade – a Win-Win for you and PRF!

We have teamed up with a vehicle donation program that handles the entire donation process for you. PRF will receive 50% of the net proceeds generated from the sale.   From your initial call, to providing all the necessary tax documentation, to scheduling free pick up, it’s a quick and simple way to give. Please call 978-535-2594 or email donations@progeriaresearch.org for car donation information or go to Cars Helping America and choose PRF from the drop down list “Your Charity Preference.” Thank you!
