Stocks and Securities
Donating appreciated securities, such as stocks or mutual funds, to WFP USA is a tax-wise approach to addressing hunger around the world.
When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to WFP USA, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value – and incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits). Appreciated securities allow you to make a larger gift at a lower initial cost to you.
