Invest in the Lives of Those Affected by Pulmonary Fibrosis
By donating securities, your generous contribution will provide enhanced support to patients with pulmonary fibrosis, increase awareness of this disease, and increase essential research funding. More than ever, your support is crucial as we continue to build momentum throughout the PF community.
Gifts of Stock
If you would like to make a contribution of stock, please contact our Donor Relations Department at 888.733.6741 or firstname.lastname@example.org prior to your donation with the name of the stock and the number of shares you wish to donate so we may properly acknowledge your gift. We will provide you or your financial advisor with all the information necessary to transfer your gift of stock.
Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than making a donation of cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock, and you may avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.

Gifts of Bonds
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:
- 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.
- 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.
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.
