Many donors prefer to donate securities, since the amount they can claim as a charitable gift for federal income tax purposes is the securities' fair market value on the date of the gift, if the securities have been held over 12 months [See IRS Code section 170(b)(1)(A)].
If you prefer to donate securities, please inform us of the gift, including the number of shares and the CUSIP number of the security. You may instruct your brokerage firm to transfer the shares to the Care and Share account via the following instructions:
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
Account Number: 634-24357-13
Account Name: Care and Share
The Pikes Peak Group @ MSSB
121 S. Tejon Street, Suite 700
Colorado Springs, CO 80903
Thanks to the generous support of our donors, Care and Share Food Bank is able to distribute millions of pounds of food to more than 400 member agencies in southern Colorado and sister food banks throughout the state to reach more than 100,000 people in need in 31 counties. Ninety-five cents of every dollar donated to Care and Share Food Bank goes directly towards our mission of bridging the gap between hunger and abundance in southern Colorado and each $1 donated will procure up to ten pounds of food - about seven meals - for a hungry person.
