So Many Ways to Make a Difference

Gifts of Stock and Mutual Funds

When you donate stock or mutual fund shares, you may deduct the full current market value of the investment on your tax return and avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciated value. If you do plan to donate stock or mutual fund shares, please contact Cindy Shanks at or (816) 929-3015 for separate instructions. Otherwise, the proceeds will be placed into a suspense account and will not be credited to Harvesters.
