Give Stocks & Securities

Donating appreciated securities, such as stock or mutual funds, to World Food Program USA can be a tax-efficient approach to addressing hunger around the world.

By transferring shares of appreciated securities directly to World Food Program USA, you can avoid federal capital gains taxes and you may also be eligible for a charitable deduction of the full fair market value of the shares on the day of the transfer.

Because electronic transfers often arrive without identification, please notify us of your intentions to transfer stock so we may identify, allocate and acknowledge your gift. Please include the name of the stock and number of shares, as well as a mailing address where we can send the tax receipt.
