Ways to give
There are lots of ways to give. Scroll down to learn which ways are right for you!
Gifts of stock, equities, and bonds provide benefits to San Francisco Playhouse and you. We can put your stock donations to immediate use and you can:
Give away appreciated assets and usually avoid a tax gain;
Receive the regular charitable income tax deduction if you itemize your taxes (consult your tax specialist for more information)
Stock Donation Instructions:
1. Please contact us at [email protected] or (415) 801-9550, and let us know the name of the stock, and the number of shares you are donating (example: “500 shares of IBM Stock”), and the broker that is handling the transaction for you so that we can be aware that the gift is forthcoming. Unfortunately, we are not provided any personal or contact information for individuals who transfer stock and without your notification, we will not be able to properly thank you for your generosity or provide you with a tax receipt.
