Poplar Forest puts gifts of appreciated securities to work right away. Securities are an easy way to give and offer tax advantages that can be discussed with a financial professional.
The quickest and most secure way to donate securities is to ask your broker to make a transfer from your account to the organization’s broker through the Depository Trust Company (DTC). Please instruct your broker to add your name in the subject line of the transfer so that we can identify you as the donor. Alternatively, you may wish to deliver personally held stock certificates directly or to register securities in the organization’s name. To alert us of a DTC transfer or for help with these other transactions, please contact Alyson Ramsey at firstname.lastname@example.org or (434) 534-8128.
Does your employer match employee contributions? Matching contributions received from corporations are greatly appreciated and are a wonderful way to increase your support of Poplar Forest. Please check with your employer to find out if your company matches charitable contributions.
Planned giving can be as simple as choosing a nonprofit organization, charity or other cause as the beneficiary of an IRA, in addition to a family member or loved one. This ensures every penny goes to the desired charity and, when that organization is Poplar Forest, helps ensure that Poplar Forest will be preserved so that future generations will have the opportunity to visit and find inspiration for living lives of curiosity and creativity as Jefferson did.
