Ways to Give

There are many ways that friends of The Philadelphia Protestant Home choose to make a gift. Careful planning ensures that your objectives are met. The information below provides an overview of some of the most common ways to make a gift.

  • Cash or check – The most common way to make a gift is by giving cash or writing a check. This type of gift provides immediate flexibility for PPh and generates a charitable income tax deduction for the donor in the year of the gift. Please make checks payable to “The Philadelphia Protestant Home.”
  • Stocks or Bonds – If you have owned securites for more than one year and the fair market value has increased since you purchased them, you can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable tax deduction equal to the fair market value.
  • Real Estate – A gift of real estate that has been held for more than one year also has the advantage of providing you with a charitable deduction based on the current fair market value, as well as bypassing capital gains tax on the appreciation.

Benevolent Care Fund

Here at The Philadelphia Protestant Home our cause, or effort to make improvements to ease suffering by contributing to something larger than ourselves, is the Benevolent Care Fund. This is a special fund for our residents who have exhausted their own financial resources. We want those residents to remain here at PPh, and be well-provided for, and our benevolent care fund makes that a possibility.
