Give Securities/Give from Donor-Advised Funds
Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds is an easy and effective way to help GMFB feed families in our service area while offering you valuable financial benefits.
The Georgia Mountain Food Bank will liquidate the securities, so you have no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciated part of the gift, and the total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible to you.
Download and complete our securities form to facilitate your stock transfer here. Please contact us if you need any assistance in completing the transaction.
If you have a donor-advised fund, consider recommending Georgia Mountain Food Bank as a designee.
