Donate Gifts of Stock to the Children’s Defense Fund!

Why Donate?

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?

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. The information you need to make a stock donation through your broker is included below.

Thank you for your generous gift.
