DID YOU KNOW YOU COULD DONATE YOUR STOCKS DIRECTLY TO THE VALLEY FOOD BANK?

You can avoid paying capital gain tax on the appreciation, and you can also claim a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the security at the time of gift. This is a great way to leverage your gift in support of the food bank.
