Stocks and Securities

retirement coupleMake an impact by donating appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to charity. Giving appreciated securities you've held for more than a year may provide you with more tax benefits. If you donate stock that has increased in value since you bought it more than a year ago - and if you itemize deductions - you can take a charitable deduction for the stock's fair market value on the day you give it away. Marketable securities are transferred electronically to an account maintained by a brokerage firm representing Midwest Food Bank. All marketable securities will be sold promptly upon receipt.

Gifts of marketable securities can be processed through ARK Financial.
