PJF Policy on Donations

 PJF solicits and welcomes gifts that are consistent with its mission and programs.

Gifts are accepted in a number of forms, including by check, wire transfer, money order, credit card, or shares of publicly traded companies. 

Donations are welcome through donor-advised funds or through direct IRA transfers to meet required minimum distributions.

PJF does not accept gifts of personal property, real property, or securities that are not publicly traded. 

Publicly traded securities may be transferred electronically to PJF’s brokerage account at Fauquier National Bank or other designated account. All securities will be sold promptly upon receipt, and the donor will receive a written acknowledgement of the date and number of shares and of the high and low market price on the date of the gift. 

PJF does not provide legal, tax, or accounting advice to donors.

PJF lists on its website the names of donors, along with the level of gift (below $1,000 and $1,000-and-over). 

Donors of $5,000 or more will be listed on PJF’s annual IRS Form 990 for 501(c)(3) public charities.
