A great benefit of donating stock is that you receive charitable donation credit for tax purposes for the full face value of the stock. This is especially valuable if the stock has appreciated significantly since you purchased it. Donating stock also allows you to avoid capital gains tax.
How Do I Donate Shares of Stocks to Charity?
We have an intuitive, easy-to-use tool that will guide you through the process of giving a gift of stock in less than 10 minutes. Additionally, the information you need to make a stock donation through your broker is included at the bottom of this page.
Securities can be gifted to the Children’s Defense Fund by electronic transfer, in which your broker transfers shares using the Children’s Defense Fund’s DTC number. You must contact your broker to begin this process.
