Make a donation to the Program for Torture Victims via check by downloading and printing our Pledge card and mail back to us.

A Gift of Stock or Mutual Funds

A gift of stock or mutual funds can be a great way to maximize tax savings while helping rebuild the lives of torture survivors. If you wish to make contributions of stock to PTV, you or your financial advisor can contact our Donor Relations Department at 213-384-4788 ext 234.

A Bequest or Other Planned Gift

With a planned gift to PTV, you can combine your desire to help torture survivors with your overall financial, tax, and estate planning goals. Whether through a bequest in your will or trust or as a designated beneficiary of your 401k or other retirement plan, a planned giving gives you a special connection with PTV as a member of our Legacy Circle. You will help those refugees who have fled human rights abuses — now and for years to come. For more information, please contact us at info@ptvla.org or call 213-747-4944 x 234 or have your financial advisor or attorney let us know by completing a Legacy Circle Declaration of Support.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Please ask your employer’s HR department for more information about their matching gift program. If your company has a matching gift program and you would like to double the impact of your gift, please contact us at info@ptvla.org or call 213-384-4788 x 234. We can help with the paperwork and mail it on your behalf.
