Give the Gift of Stock

With the stock market’s recovery and rise over the past 10 years, please consider donating your appreciated securities directly to CDI this year. Donating appreciated securities is a tax-efficient strategy – when donating to a public charity like CDI, you can usually deduct the full fair market value and eliminate any tax on the appreciation on securities held for more than one year. Please be sure to check with your tax advisor for your specific situation. Gifts of stock to CDI are handled by Vanguard – please contact Camille Fleming at for more information.
