A gift of stock is one of the simplest and most tax-savvy ways to support American Farmland Trust.
Just transfer appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) you have owned for at least one year to AFT; pay no capital gains tax plus take a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of your gift. Most importantly your gift supports critical farmland conservation efforts.
The entire transaction can be handled electronically – saving you time and effort. Simply supply your broker with the following information:
