SDPB Friends Individual Membership - GIFTS

Many of our donors choose to make Stock gifts or give IRA Distributions to Friends of SDPB each year.


Giving from your IRA

Please complete the following form IRA Distribution (PDF), share that form with your provider and send SDPB a copy as well so that we can expedite your gift when received. Please send your completed form to Adam Davenport  or email adam.davenport at


Gifts of Stock/Securities

Giving stock held more than 12 months offers a two-fold tax savings:

  • Receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift
  • Avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock


Subtracting the tax savings from what you originally paid for the stock can result in a gift that costs just pennies on the dollar. This is an excellent giving option for stock that has appreciated substantially in value. Your gift of stock also brings with it SDPB Membership.
