Make a Gift of Grain

Support Your Community with a Gift of Grain

At the Heartland Community Foundation, we believe in the power of community and the generosity of our local farmers. By making a gift of grain, you can make a significant impact on the causes and organizations that matter most to you, all while enjoying unique financial benefits.

Why Donate Grain?

Donating grain to the Heartland Community Foundation is a simple and effective way to support local charities, schools, churches, and community projects. This method not only helps your community thrive but also offers substantial tax advantages for you as a farmer.

Benefits of Donating Grain

  • Tax Savings: By donating grain before it is sold, you can exclude the sale proceeds from your taxable income. This can lower your overall income tax liability, reduce self-employment tax, and may provide savings on both state and federal income taxes.
  • Business Expense Deductions: The cost of producing the donated grain can still be deducted as a business expense.
  • Community Impact: Your donation directly supports the causes you care about, from education and healthcare to community development and beyond.

How to Donate Grain

  1. Inform Your Elevator: Notify your grain elevator of your intention to donate a specific quantity of grain to the Heartland Community Foundation. Provide them with our contact information: 785-621-4090 or 
  2. Transfer Ownership: Deliver the grain to your elevator and request them to transfer ownership to the Heartland Community Foundation. Ensure the grain is transferred before it is sold to qualify as a donation.
  3. Complete the Donation: The elevator will issue a warehouse receipt to the community foundation, which will then sell the grain. The proceeds will be directed to the fund or charity of your choice. We will be in touch with you.
  4. Receive a Receipt: Once the grain is sold, we will send you a receipt for your donation, which you can use for tax purposes.

Your Impact

When you donate grain, you are directly investing in the future of our community. Your contribution can support a wide range of needs, including:

  • Local schools and educational programs
  • Healthcare initiatives
  • Community development projects
  • Support for local charities and churches
