Cash or Check
One of the simplest and most convenient ways to make a charitable gift is to make a gift of cash. Please do not send currency through the mail. Your check should be made payable to “Phoebe-Devitt Homes” and sent to:
Office of Philanthropy
1925 Turner Street
Allentown, PA 18104
Use your credit card to make a gift online or call 610-794-5132 to make a credit card gift by phone.
Gifts of Stock
Stocks may be transferred to Phoebe and provide tax benefits to the donor. Generally speaking, an appreciated security should be transferred directly to Phoebe to avoid having to pay capital gains tax. Typically a depreciated stock should not be transferred directly to Phoebe. It is usually beneficial to consider selling the depreciated stock and deducting the loss—then make a gift of cash from the proceeds of the sale.
To make a gift of securities, please call 610-794-5132 or email [email protected] to inform Phoebe of the number of shares and the name of the stock(s) and/or mutual fund(s) you plan to contribute. We will coordinate the transfer with your financial adviser or broker.
Matching gifts are an excellent way to increase your support without additional out-of-pocket expense.
For corporate matching gifts, contact the human resources office at your employer or your spouse’s employer to inquire about their matching gift program.
Through a partnership with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) Phoebe Ministries accepts all types of donated vehicles to support its mission from cars, trucks, and SUVs to RVs, boats, motorcycles, and even airplanes!
