Stock Gifts

Help feed local families with your gift of stock

March 16, 2020: Due to the unusual and extreme market volatility at this time, the impact of your stock gift may be lessened because our policy requires us to immediately sell securities upon receipt so as to not time the market. We respectfully request you consider making your gift through other vehicles such as check, credit card, donor advised funds, IRA distributions, etc.

With a gift of securities, you pay no capital gains taxes and may be able to deduct the full fair market value of appreciated stocks or mutual funds held longer than one year.

Giving a gift of stock is simple:

Use the following information when requesting a stock gift transfer through your broker.
We’ve made it easy with a form you can submit directly to your broker.

Often donor information is not included when shares are transferred to Second Harvest, but we want you to know your gift is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
