How do I transfer stock to Bread & Roses?

Gifts of appreciated securities benefit Bread & Roses while you realize substantial tax savings. For example, suppose the 100 shares of XYZ Co that you purchased in 1999 for $2000 are now worth $10,000. If you were to sell that stock you would pay tax (usually at 15%) on the $8000 gain. However, if you give the stock itself to Bread & Roses you pay no capital gains tax and you get a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the $10,000. For more information on transferring stock please contact casey@breadrosesfund.org or call 215-731-1107 x203.

How do I make a bequest to Bread & Roses?

Designate Bread & Roses as the recipient of a specific amount or percentage of your estate, or as the recipient of the remainder after you’ve provided for others. For more information on planned giving please contact maura@breadrosesfund.org or call 215-731-1107 x204.

How and why should I set up a donor-advised fund?

Motivation for setting up a donor-advised fund varies. For some, a donor-advised fund may reduce your taxes now or in the future, while benefitting Bread & Roses Community Fund and the grassroots groups we serve. Others may choose to create a donor advised fund, either as an individual or a small group, as a means to direct money to a particular area or issue.
