When your stock gift is received, we will mail an acknowledgment letter and tax
receipt stating the name of the stock, the number of shares, and the fair market value on the date it was received by the Potter League. In order to be sure we have the correct information to acknowledge your gift, please contact Liz Isdale, Chief Philanthropy Officer at Lisdale@potterleague.org or (401) 846-0592.
If you are 70 ½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit the PLFA and receive tax benefits in return. You can give any amount up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay taxes on the money.
To make a gift from your IRA, speak with your financial or legal advisor about making a direct transfer to the PLFA or have the administrator send a check from your account to us (in order to be tax-free, the donation must go directly from your account to the PLFA). Please notify the PLFA of your donation by calling our Development Office at (401) 846-0592.

Making a gift of appreciated stock can benefit you as well as the animals. Donating stock you’ve held for more than 12 months avoids capital gains taxes on the increase in the stock’s value and allows you to receive its full, fair market value on the date of the gift.
