Donate Stock

Making a gift of stock is a simple and powerful way to support the critical mission of Feed My People. It also offers you a number of financial benefits:

  • You can easily donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds
  • The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
  • There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation


If you have any questions about the process for stock donations below, contact Karen Lanter at 314.631.4900 or by email at karenl@fmpstl.org.
