A Gift of Securities
A donor that owns appreciated securities can benefit in two ways by making a gift of securities to People’s Resource Center. First, they will be able to claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full value of the shares, and second, they will be able to avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due if they sold the shares. When making a gift of securities, it is important that you arrange for a direct transfer of your securities to PRC and not sell them yourself. Contact the PRC Finance Office at 630- 682-5402, ext. 276 for additional information.
A matching gift by your company or organization extends your generosity by adding the matching amount to your own gift at no additional expense to you. It is easy to make a matching gift. Simply contact your Human Resources Department and inquire about your company’s matching employee donations policy. Follow the procedure they recommend and designate People’s Resource Center as your gift recipient.
Memorial or Tribute Card
Memorial and Honorarium Cards are available through People’s Resource Center and all donations made in memory of a loved one benefit the neighbors who come to PRC in their time of need.
Your gift to People’s Resource Center may be made in memory, or in honor of someone. The amount of the donation that you include is your choice. No gift is too large or too small. We will then follow the instructions that you included in your note.
If you would rather send a check for the card, please send a note including the name of the person who you wish to be remembered along with the name, address, city, state and zip of the person(s) receiving the card.
If you have any questions about obtaining a Memorial Card or Honorarium, please call the Development Office at 630-384-1361.

Real estate can be contributed to People’s Resource Center, entitling the donor to an income tax deduction based on the current, appraised value. In addition, the donor also avoids a potential capital gains tax on the property. The Development Office at People’s Resource Center can help with this transfer. It is advisable to consult with your attorney and accountants prior to making a gift of this type. For more information, please call 630-682-5402, ext. 242.
