Monetary Donations

Circle Of Concern’s largest expenses are fresh/perishable foods and short-term financial assistance for our clients. In fact, 86 cents of every dollar we receive directly supports our clients through the pantry and other programs. Your financial gifts make it possible for us to meet these critical needs.

There is a tax advantage to donating “appreciated” value stock. The donor avoids having to pay a capital gains tax when the donor sells the stock. In addition, the donor gets a tax deduction equal to the market value of the stock donation. To make a gift of stock, please advise your broker to direct the funds to benefit Circle of Concern (in Valley Park, MO) through Edward Jones, DTC#0057.
