Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank - Supporting the Community Through Philanthropy
Welcome to the Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank! As a leading philanthropic organization in the Phoenix area, we strive to make a positive impact on the community by providing essential food assistance to those in need. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of donating stock, the benefits it offers, and how your contribution can help us continue our mission.
Why Donate Stock?
Donating stocks is a great way to support our organization while maximizing your tax benefits. When you choose to contribute stocks instead of cash, you not only help us in our mission to alleviate hunger, but you may also receive valuable tax deductions.
By donating appreciated stocks, you eliminate capital gains taxes that you would have otherwise incurred if you sold the stocks. Additionally, you will receive a tax deduction based on the current market value of the donated securities. This allows you to contribute more towards our cause without impacting your overall financial situation.
How to Donate Stock
Donating stocks to the Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank is a simple and straightforward process:
- Evaluate Your Stocks: Identify which stocks you would like to donate. Consider the value, appreciation, and potential tax benefits associated with each stock.
- Contact Your Broker: Reach out to your brokerage firm or financial advisor and inform them of your intention to donate stocks to our organization. Provide them with our account information, including our brokerage firm and account number.
- Complete Required Forms: Your broker will guide you through the necessary paperwork needed to facilitate the transfer. These forms typically include a Letter of Authorization and a Stock or Securities Transfer Form.
- Transfer the Stocks: After completing the required forms, instruct your broker to transfer the stocks to our designated brokerage account.
- Notify Us: Once the transfer is complete, please notify us of your generous donation. Providing us with the details of your donation helps us keep accurate records and express our gratitude.
The Benefits of Donating Stock
Donating stock to the Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank not only supports our mission but also provides you with significant benefits:
- Tax Deductions: As a qualified charitable contribution, your stock donation can be eligible for a charitable tax deduction. Consult with your tax advisor to fully understand the potential tax benefits based on your individual circumstances.
- Capital Gains Tax Savings: By donating appreciated stocks rather than selling them, you can avoid paying capital gains taxes, helping you preserve your financial resources.
