Give the Gift of Opportunity
If you donate your appreciated securities to the food bank, you can improve the lives of children, families, and seniors in need throughout the Northern Neck and Upper Middle Peninsula region. At the same time, your donation can help you reduce or avoid capital gains taxes on those securities and receive a federal income tax charitable deduction. The larger your gift, the larger your potential deduction.
To help the food bank provide healthy, nutritious food to those who struggle with hunger, you can donate:
- Mutual funds (that you’ve held for more than a year)
You can also designate the food bank as the beneficiary of your securities. This option is great for shares that have appreciated significant value but yield a low dividend. For more information, contact your broker.
What happens when you donate stock?
By liquidating your stock gift right away, the food bank puts your support to work immediately, providing help for families in need.
