Support the Food Bank
Giving stock, bonds or other securities allows you to support the Food Bank while potentially realizing significant tax benefits. Fighting hunger with a gift of appreciated securities you’ve held for more than one year is the same as giving cash.
By donating to the Food Bank, you may be able to reduce or avoid capital gains taxes and receive a federal income tax charitable deduction.
And for every dollar donated, your gift will provide enough food for two meals to your neighbors in need.
In order to complete a donation of securities, please complete BOTH steps below:
STEP 1—Contact your broker to transfer your shares.

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is like a charitable investment account with the purpose of supporting charities you care about, like the Food Bank. Contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to your favorite IRS qualified charities.
