December 10 discussion on Hunger and Housing




Register for our Virtual Town Hall on
Hunger & Housing

Join us for a Virtual Town Hall as Food Bank CEO Andrew Schiff and HousingWorks RI Director Brenda Clement discuss the impact of COVID-19 on hunger and housing. As the economic downturn continues and we head into the winter months, we face the combined challenges of a shortage of affordable housing, mass evictions and an increased demand for food assistance. Hear how both organizations are addressing these issues.

Giving Stocks to the Food Bank

We know this year looks different in so many ways, but it is still the time of year when you might be thinking about a year end gift and exploring your tax planning.  A gift of appreciated securities to the Food Bank may be a tax savvy way for you to help those in need in our community. 
When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer.
