How to Donate Stock or Securities

Thank you for your interest in donating stock or securities to ECHO. By giving appreciated securities, you can usually bypass any capital gains tax due had you sold them.  You'll receive a charitable deduction for their fair market value, while also supporting ECHO's mission to reduce hunger and improve lives worldwide. 

For your convenience, all the details you'll need to arrange your gift of stock or securities is provided here. If you have questions or would like our help in the process, please feel free to contact Amy Wiggins, Advancement Director, at 239.567.3341 or awiggins@echonet.org.
