The Gift of Securities

Donating publicly-traded stock and securities is a tax-smart way to support Daily Bread — it allows you to directly avoid tax on capital gains, maximizes the return on your investment, and protects the tax credits for use against other taxable income.

The process is simple — all you need to do is fill out the Donation of Securities Form, have the form signed by the donor, and send it to the Daily Bread Food Bank. You’ll receive a tax receipt for the full appreciated value of your donation of publicly traded stock or securities, and the transfer is easy and fast.

Eligible gifts include:

Publicly traded stocks
Shares acquired through employee stock options
Units in mutual trust funds

To submit your gift, please fill out our Donation of Securities form below and we’ll be in touch when the transfer is complete.
