Make a donation that will truly make an impact
Instead of selling your investments and donating the after-tax cash proceeds, donating stock to
Move For Hunger, Inc. increases your gift and tax deductions. This can include publicly traded stock,
bonds, or mutual fund shares, to Move For Hunger, Inc. Stock donations can also be used to endow
an annual gift or establish a planned gift.
Appreciated securities are investments that have increased in value from the time they were
purchased. Some individuals and households may be able to take advantage of IRS tax provisions to
claim a charitable tax deduction for the total, fair market value of the securities, and you may avoid
paying capital gains tax on the transfer.
A gift of stock made before December 31 of a calendar year may reduce your tax burden for the
year you give. Your financial advisor can explain the possible tax benefits depending on whether the
stock has appreciated or lost value since you acquired it.
