Appreciated stocks and bonds

StockDonating appreciated securities, including stocks and bonds, is an easy and tax-efficient way to make a gift to help us end PKD.


When you make a gift from your assets instead of your income you may:

  • Receive an immediate income-tax deduction.*
  • Avoid capital gains tax on appreciated securities you donate.*
  • Help us move toward a day where no one suffers the full effects of PKD.

*The double tax break helps you make a larger gift at a lower cost.


If you would like to electronically transfer a gift of securities to the PKD Foundation, please print and complete the letter of authorization. Mail or fax the original letter to your broker, and mail or fax a copy to the PKD Foundation so that we can properly acknowledge your gift.

Or, you may advise your broker that the PKD Foundation UMB Scout Brokerage Services account number is 087-124052, and the DTC number is 0226. Please notify the PKD Foundation about the transfer so that your gift can be properly acknowledged. Let us know by contacting us at or 1.800.753.2873.
