The Community Foundation is excited to plow ahead with introducing the option of a charitable gift of ordinary income property (grain). A gift of grain creates the ability to exclude that portion of income on your tax returns. In order to be IRS compliant, the gift (transfer) of grain must happen before the sale. Donations given locally invest in our community. Your gift of grain will leave a legacy in Grant County that will live on forever!
Before giving a gift of grain, contact your financial adviser or give us a call and we can connect you with a representative.
