By giving to the Community Kitchen, you help in our work of serving the homeless, hungry, and less fortunate of our area. We feed the hungry with nutritious food, but with dignity and hope that can change lives. Hunger does not discriminate. Young and old, black and white, male and female… the many faces of hunger are different, but the pain and the need are the same. For many in our community, hunger is one of life’s daily realities.

Stock Options

The Community Kitchen, Inc. Fund was established at The Columbus Foundation earlier this year.  The Fund makes it easy for donors to give a gift of appreciated securities (such as stock, bonds, and mutual funds). Appreciated securities held long term often provide important tax advantages, as their full market value is generally deductible as a charitable contribution up to thirty percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income. Like gifts of cash, deduction amounts that exceed the limit can be carried forward for up to five additional years.  This is a great way to support our work.

Please contact Steven Moore at Columbus Foundation if you would like to learn more about donating securities to support our programs and the work that we do.   Steven can be reached at 614-251-4000 or via email at smoore@columbusfoundation.org.
