Ways to Give

We sincerely appreciate your support of the Providence Preservation Society’s Power of Preservation Education Campaign. Please select your preferred giving method below. All gifts to the Campaign are fully tax-deductible.

Cash Gifts: Make a cash gift to the Campaign. Checks should be made payable to Providence Preservation Society with “Capital Campaign” in the memo line, and mailed to 24 Meeting Street, Providence, RI 02903. Credit card payments can be made over the phone by calling 401-831-7440 or securely online via Paypal.

Interested in making a recurring donation? Click the “Make this a monthly donation” checkbox on the donate page. You will need a Paypal account to use this option. You can change or cancel the recurring donation at any time through your Paypal account.

Gifts of Stock: Donations of stock incur no capital gains tax when given for charitable purposes. To make a gift or pledge payment, donors should direct their broker to transfer stock to Providence Preservation Society (do not sell the stock before transferring.) When making a gift/payment of this kind, donors should contact Angela Kondon at 401-831-7440 or at akondon@ppsri.org for special transfer instructions and inform us of the name of the stock, the number of shares being transferred, and the transfer date, so staff will be aware of the gift’s arrival and accurately record the information on your behalf.

Vehicle Donation: Have a car that’s past its prime? Donate it to PPS! From cars, trucks, RVs and more—we accept almost any type of vehicle donation that meets the following basic requirements:

  1. Vehicle has a clear title.
  2. Vehicle is in one piece but does not need to be running.
  3. Vehicle is tow truck accessible.

Donating a vehicle is easy and tax-deductible. Simply call 855-500-RIDE (7433) or submit the secure online donation form at https://careasy.org/nonprofit/Providence-Preservation-Society.

Memorial/Tribute Gifts: Donors may make a gift in honor/memory of a family member, friend or colleague. Please provide PPS with information about how you would like your gift to be recognized when you make your contribution.
