Stock donations

Stock donations are particularly attractive if they have increased in value - you will receive a charitable deduction for the value of the donated shares, and you may not have to pay any capital gains tax on the increased value of the donated shares. Be sure to talk with your tax advisor for the best scenario for you!

Step 1: Transferring the stock

Option 1: Electronic transfer: your broker transfers shares to CCST using our DTC number; click here to download our stock form.

Option 2: Paper certificates: you must endorse and physically mail the paper certificates to CCST; see below for details when using paper certificates.

Either method is acceptable, but it is necessary for you to contact your broker to initiate the transfer.

Notify us so your gift is properly logged and assigned
