Other Ways to Give
Consider Planned Giving
Planned gifts carry your philanthropic impact forward to help shape the future of Penumbra. We can guide you through the process and make your vision of a strong legacy a reality.
Make Gifts of Securities, Stock, and IRA’s
Donating stock can be incredibly beneficial. When you donate long-term appreciated securities, you not only avoid paying capital gains tax, but you are able to claim a charitable deduction for the full, appreciated value of the securities. You may also want to consider donating retirement plan assets to Penumbra. We recommend you speak with your tax advisor for more information.
Think About Employer Matching Benefits
Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that make their employees charitable gift contributions go even further. We are grateful to our corporate partners who provide this resource.
