Each fall the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania launches its annual campaign. If you participate, please consider directing your donation to PHS. Simply note Donor Option ID #06197 on your United Way pledge card.
Your contribution supports PHS, which works with communities throughout the region to beautify neighborhoods, enhance public landscapes, and preserve open green space.
Gifts of securities are simple to donate and may provide favorable tax benefits. Appreciated securities, held for more than one year, may be deducted from taxable income without paying a capital gains tax on the appreciated portion of the gift. Gifts of securities are credited on the date of transfer to PHS and are valued at the mean of the high and low quoted sales price on the day of the gift. Gifts of stock to PHS are 100% tax deductible.
It is important that you notify PHS before making a gift of stock. Without such notice, gifts of stock may be transferred to PHS with the identity of the donor unknown, making proper credit and timely acknowledgement difficult. If you require more assistance on making a transfer of securities, please contact the Development Office by phone at 215-988-8894.
Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations, or as an expression of sympathy, a tribute gift is a wonderful way to honor family and friends throughout the year. A personal acknowledgment is sent to the family or individual being honored. Tribute gifts are 100% tax deductible.
Make an unrestricted gift to PHS that supports programs and services throughout the Philadelphia area including: park revitalization, neighborhood tree plantings, community garden support, civic space maintenance, and educational offerings.
