Discuss the implications of your securities gift with your tax and/or financial advisor. Donating long-term appreciated stocks and other securities can have attractive tax advantages. For example, donations of securities minimize federal and state income taxes on the capital gains. Additionally, you can make a larger, more significant gift but at a fraction of the cost, given the original cost of the security.

Unless otherwise indicated, all donations of stock, bonds, and mutual funds will transfer directly to our investment account which serves as our endowment. All investment income finances the operational costs of The Harvest Fund thereby enabling capital market gains to flow directly to those living in extreme poverty. The endowment also enables The Harvest Fund to serve as a loan guarantor for any of the technology or business microloans that our farmers take, thereby offsetting the costs of the loan. We carefully monitor and train our farmers to minimize any risk of loan default.
The Harvest Fund is a Zambian NGO and private company limited by guarantee.
The Harvest Fund is a US IRS 501(c)(3) registered organization.
