Gifts of Grain

Your crops are your livelihood, your life. You prepare, you plant, you nurture and it grows. Donating a gift of grain to Prairie Rivers of Iowa is a way to make a lasting difference. The value of the grain can be a general cash value gift, or can be designated to one of our endowment funds. 

By giving grain, you avoid including the sale of the grain in your farm income. Although a charitable income tax deduction is generally not available to you, the significant benefit to you is the avoidance of declaring it as income. You deduct the cost of growing the crops which typically results in saving self-employment tax, federal income tax and state income tax. You can benefit even if you don’t itemize your deductions and take the standard deduction.

To learn more about, or to make a specific gift to one of our Endowment Funds or Gifts of Grain, please contact our Executive Director Penny Brown-Huber, or the Story County Community Foundation.
