Ways to Give
Donate Appreciated Stock If you have appreciated stock (or bonds or mutual funds) that you’ve held for many years, consider donating that instead of cash. Here’s why… If you sell your appreciated stock first and then give the cash, you pay the 24% capital gains tax on the gain (estimated federal and state). But if you donate the stock directly to PEF, there’s no capital gains tax.

Of course, you should also contact your own qualified financial adviser. Thank you for helping PEF make sure our schools have the funds they need to give your child the education he deserves.
