The Great Plains Restoration CouncilGifts of appreciated securities may be deducted at full market value on the date of transfer to Peace Development Fund. Give the Peace Development Fund a gift of stock that has increased in value and you may:

  • Claim a charitable gift deduction on your current year’s taxes, if you itemize
  • Avoid capital gains taxes you would owe if you sold it yourself
  • Avoid paying broker fees on the sale

To receive the full tax benefit, it is very important that you donate your appreciated stock directly to PDF and have us sell it.

If you have any questions regarding making a stock gift to PDF please call our offices at 413-256-8306 or e-mail Kathy.
