For cash gifts enclose a check payable to Pure Charity.” In the check’s memo section, please designate the allocation of the gift, i.e., to The First Bridge Foundation, Pure Charity, or the eventual recipient of your gift (for example, the name of the organization you wish to support).
For large gifts of cash we urge you to explore our “Enhanced Market Linked Note” program that can return principal, provide stock market upside participation with no downside risk; while still enabling a significant donation to your charity of choice.
Most gifts, other than cash, will likely require special handling. For example, you may be required to provide personal information as well as details related to the donation itself (for securities this may include the name of the security and issuer, the number of shares or units, ticker symbols, where it is currently being held (bank or brokerage firm), and Cusip numbers).
For gifts of low basis stock or Rule 144 Restricted Stock we urge you to explore many of our unique programs that provide economic benefits above and beyond the typical tax write-offs.
