An Example of How It Works
When Sarah's* father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising Northern Illinois Food Bank for its tireless efforts to better his community.
Sarah decided to make a gift to Northern Illinois Food Bank in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at Northern Illinois Food Bank thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
