Your donation will help ensure that seniors have access to our vital programs and services. When you decide to give, you can designate your gift to one of our programs, or to the greatest need, which means we’ll use the funds where we see them having the biggest impact given our other sources of funding. Below are a number of different ways to donate.

Monetary Donations

Your monetary donation helps to pay for all the things we need to run our programs, from food for meals on wheels, to utilities to ensure that Little House and Rosener House are warm, welcoming places, to employing our capable and qualified staff members who deliver quality programs day in and day out. You can call us at 650-326-0665, make a donation using our online form here, or mail a check made out to Peninsula Volunteers, Inc. to

Donate Stock or other Securities

Donate appreciated stock or property to Peninsula Volunteers, Inc. Consider a gift of appreciated stock or property to PVI. Transfer stock shares directly to us from your brokerage or investment firm and you may qualify for an income tax charitable deduction and eliminate capital gains tax. Note: If you sell shares of stock or bond funds first and then direct the proceeds to a charity, the sale is subject to capital gains tax — which reduces the tax benefit of your gift. You’ll be responsible for a tax on any profits you make from the sale as additional income. The limitation on charitable gifts of long-term appreciated property to public charities will remain at 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. You can still carry over any excess for up to five additional years. How to do: Peninsula Volunteers, Inc.’s broker is Morgan Stanley, in Palo Alto, CA. The donor should instruct his or her broker to electronically transfer the stocks to our account at: Depository Trust Company [DTC] #0015 Account # 112-069339 When the securities will be sold when received at Morgan Stanley. PVI will be notified of the sale amount and will acknowledge the gift via a letter to the donor.

Your gift of stock or other securities will be sold to provide needed funding to our programs, while potentially providing tax benefits to you as the donor. For information on how to transfer stock or securities to PVI, contact our Development Director at 650-272-5002 or donations@penvol.org. Please discuss any potential tax benefits or implications with your own financial adviser. We are not able to give tax or financial planning advice.
