Your Legacy, Our Future
Consider the values you hold dear. Do you believe that no child should go to school on an empty stomach? Do you think that no senior should skip a meal in order to pay medications? Or that a working family should not have to forgo food to pay their rent?
Transferring stocks that have appreciated in value can provide greater tax advantages than a gift of cash. The market value of securities is deductible, subject to applicable limitations, and as the donor, you avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation.
To donate stock to Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida, please contact:

Giving at Work
Many employers will match their employees’ donations, doubling your impact in helping us fight hunger. Check with your employer about employer match campaigns.
Some companies that match employee gifts:
Become a superstar and join our mission to lead our community in the fight to end hunger. Your business, service group or school can take part in our Superstar Wall program with three simple steps.
- Funds: Raise a minimum of $500 for the food bank. Remember, we can turn every dollar donated into $8 worth of food.
- Friends: Schedule a volunteer day. There are opportunities for everyone to be part of our mission to lead our community in the fight to end hunger, whether it’s by sorting food, donating skills or services, or distributing food at a mobile food pantry.
- Food: Set up a food drive, register your drive with us, collect the food and drop it off. Every donation helps.
