Donations of Stocks and Bonds
Donating appreciated stock, mutual funds, or bonds that have been held for more than a year is a great way to support the Food Bank and provide yourself with a greater tax benefit. The Food Bank receives the full value of the stock and you potentially get a much bigger tax deduction than you would by selling the stock then donating the net proceeds.
For example, if a donor paid $10,000 for an investment and it is now worth $20,000, the donor can transfer (donate) the $20,000 investment into the Marysville Community Food Bank’s investment account. The donor gets credit for a $20,000 donation without selling the appreciated asset and without having to pay capital gains tax on the $10,000 gain.
Please contact the Food Bank or your financial advisor for more details.
