Other Ways to Give

Matching Gifts

Many companies will match their employees’ contributions annual or sustaining gifts to PRC. For more information, contact your company’s Human Resources Department for information about its matching gift program. Here is a partial list of US-based corporations that will match employee contributions to PRC.

Workplace Giving

Many companies participate in the United Way or similar employee fundraising programs, and you can designate PRC as the beneficiary. Contact your company’s Human Resources Department for information about its workplace giving efforts.

Stock Donations

If you own stock or mutual funds, it may be more tax-wise to contribute these shares than cash. This is because a gift of appreciated stock or mutual funds provides you a two-fold tax advantage. First, you avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in the value of the stock or mutual funds. Second, you receive a federal income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock or mutual funds at the time of the gift. For information, please download instructions on making contributions of stock or mutual funds to PRC.

Community Events & Corporate Sponsorships

PRCs’ special events provide community partners and corporate sponsors a variety of opportunities to do good while promoting their organizations. For more information about hosting a fundraiser on behalf of PRC or sponsoring one of our many existing special events, including our annual Mighty Real Gala, please contact us at development@prcsf.org.

Estate & Planned Gifts

Find out how to leave your legacy by including PRC in your estate plans. For more information and to set-up a time to review your options, please contact Chief Strategy Officer Katherine Bella at Katherine.Bella@prcsf.org.

Auction Items

You can donate new items and professional services to be used as auction and raffle prizes at one of PRC many special events. Examples of highly desirable items include vacation and travel packages, restaurant gift certificates, and exclusive event opportunities. For more information or to make your donation, please contact Development Associate Hayden Reynolds at Hayden.Reynolds@prcsf.org.

Vehicle, Furniture or Household Items

We have an arrangement with Charitable Auto Resources (CARS) to process our vehicle donations (cars, trucks, boats, motor homes, or motorcycles). CARS arranges a free vehicle pickup, handles all the DMV issues, sells the vehicle at auction, and distributes the net proceeds to PRC. By donating, you’ll avoid the headache of selling a used vehicle, help support PRC, and receive a receipt entitling you to a tax deduction. When you’re ready to donate or want to learn more, simply contact CARS at (877) 386-3848, or visit our web page there at https://careasy.org/prc.

When you donate to Community Thrift Store (623 Valencia Street), you can choose PRC to receive the proceeds from the sale of furniture, clothing or household items. Community Thrift disburses funds to PRC, minus operation costs, on a quarterly basis. Whether you are moving or doing your annual spring cleaning, Community Thrift can put your unwanted items to good use! And, of course, you can buy what you need for your new place. Call (415) 861-4910 for more information.
