PDF Board of Directors $500,000 Challenge

Donate to PDF by midnight on Thursday, December 31st and your gift will be matched! Due to a generous gift by the PDF Board of Directors, when you make a gift to PDF, your contribution will automatically be doubled to support our work.
All donations enable PDF to invest in a team of leaders in research, health care and the patient community, and mobilize them to find the cure together.
Gifts of securities, including stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, can provide financial benefits to you while you support the vital mission of the Parkinson's Disease Foundation.  Even if the value of your securities has decreased, it may be advantageous for you to sell your depreciated securities and make a cash contribution with the proceeds. By selling your depreciated securities before making a gift, you can realize the deductible loss of your investment followed by a tax deduction of your charitable amount.
If the value of donated securities you've held longer than twelve months has increased, you can realize great tax benefits. By making a gift of these appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains taxes on any of the gifted securities while getting a tax deduction equal to the average market value of the securities on the date of the gift.
To make sure the value of your gifted securities is doubled by the Board of Directors Chellenge, please contact Mai Lee Wong at mwong@pdf.org and indicate the number of shares and which security you will be donating.
