Donate Stocks, Bonds
& Mutual Funds


Looking for a tax-wise way to keep the shelves stocked at Manna Food Center? Are you holding shares that have appreciated significantly in value but pay a low dividend? Consider donating appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, or mutual funds you've held for more than one year) to Manna Food Center. By doing so, you may be able to reduce or avoid capital gains taxes and receive a federal income tax charitable deduction. For every dollar donated, you'll help provide $5 worth of food to Montgomery County residents in need.

You can also designate Manna Food Center as the beneficiary of your securities. Please contact your broker for more information about this simple way to support hunger relief. The procedure may vary from one security to another.

We recommend that you or your broker contact Manna's development department at 301-424-1130 to discuss the specific details of the gift and make sure that all of the steps are handled properly to give you the credit for the gift.
