Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated securities, such as stocks and mutual funds, are an excellent way to support the Barnes Foundation. Though simple, these gifts provide a greater tax benefit than an equivalent gift in cash. For questions and information about proper procedures, please contact the Development Office at 215.278.7110.
To promote charitable giving, many employers sponsor matching gift programs in which they will match their employees’ contributions to non-profit organizations. Check with your Human Resources Department to see if your company offers such initiatives. If so, mail us a completed matching gift form, and we will take care of the rest. Call us at 215.278.7121 for more information.
As you weigh your estate planning options, please consider including the Barnes. Whether in the form of a bequest or other planned giving variety, you and your gift can contribute to the legacy of Dr. Barnes’s artistic and educational vision for generations to come. Additionally, such a gift would be eligible for an estate tax charitable deduction equal to the entire amount of the bequest. To discuss planned giving opportunities, call us at 215.278.7111.
