Why donate stock to Food & Water Watch?
When you’ve owned stock for more than a year, you can receive a tax deduction based on its fair market value when you donate to Food & Water Watch. This is based on the value on the date of the gift (up to 30% of your adjusted gross income). You can avoid capital gains tax when you sell appreciated stock. Ask your financial advisor how to maximize your contribution by carrying over the deduction for up to 5 years. Even if the stock has decreased in value, you can receive a tax deduction (up to 50% of your adjusted gross income), while still taking a capital loss on your federal taxes. Talk to your tax professional to learn more.
