You can make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to charity.
Compared with donating cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction.
When you donate stock to charity, you’ll generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value. And because you are donating stock, your contribution and tax deduction may instantly increase. If you would prefer to donate bonds or mutual funds, the same benefits apply. For some great information see this page from Fidelity, or talk to your brokerage account manager.
