Make Saving Family Farms One of Your Investments

A gift of stock is one of the simplest and most tax savvy ways to support American Farmland Trust. Just transfer appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) you have owned for at least one year to AFT; pay no capital gains tax plus take a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of your gift. Most importantly your gift supports critical farmland conservation efforts.

Giving a gift of appreciated securities is easy. The entire transaction can be handled electronically – saving you time and effort.
