Donate Stock to Food First
Donating highly appreciated stock allows you to avoid capital gains tax on it. It may also allow you to make a larger tax-deductible gift to Food First than you might otherwise be able to afford. Want to schedule a time to talk on the phone about your stock gift to Food First? Give us your name and number and we’ll follow up to discuss what you need to know. Securities Delivered by Mail: Electronic delivery of stock shares is more secure and faster than mail. If you prefer, you may transfer certificates by mail. Mail your unsigned stock certificate in one envelope and a stock power letter in a second envelope. If you have already signed your certificate on the back, send it to Food First by certified mail because a signed certificate is like cash. Mail to Food First/Institute for Food and Development Policy.
