Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated stock entitle the donor to tax deductions at the appreciated value with no capital gains tax. For more information, please email info@eastendfood.org

Retirement Plan Gifts

If you are 70½ or older, you can donate up to $100,000 from your individual retirement account directly to charity. The contribution counts towards your required minimum distribution and isn't included in your adjusted gross income. That could qualify you for tax breaks tied to your adjusted gross income and reduce or eliminate taxes on Social Security benefits. Please contact your retirement account manager for more information and to arrange a gift. For more information, please email info@eastendfood.org.

During the height of the growing season, we depend on volunteers to help wash, peel, and process tens of thousands of pounds of produce from local farms. To volunteer, please email info@eastendfood.org.
