How Does It Work?

  • A donor gives bushels of grain to St. Mary's by completing a “Transfer of Ownership” form available through the PDF link below or by requesting a form by email at

  • The parish assumes ownership of the grain and sells it for market value.

  • The donor does not recognize the income from the sale of the grain while also receiving Iowa tax credit from this program. (Donors are encouraged to contact their tax accountant for further clarification.)
