Endowed Gifts

You have the power to help safeguard the future of Action Against Hunger. How?  By making an endowed gift. Your gift is an investment in our future, helping us grow and thrive for years to come.

An endowed gift can create a new endowment or add to an existing endowment. The principal of the endowment is invested and a portion of the principal’s earnings are used each year to support our mission.

You can create an endowed gift using the following assets:

A gift of cash in the form of a check is the easiest way to create a lasting legacy through our endowment.

Appreciated Securities
The most tax-efficient way to fund an endowed gift is with appreciated assets you have held for more than a year.

Tangible Personal Property
You may be able to use non-income-producing property such as stamp and coin collections or works of art in exchange for a federal income tax charitable deduction.

Real Estate
Your gift of appreciated real estate will qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the property and eliminate long-term capital gains tax
