Frequently Asked Questions
What is the tax benefit of donating appreciated stock?
Donating stock can be the most efficient way to make charitable contributions by saving on potential capital gains taxes which may allow donors to give more to the causes they care about. To understand the full tax benefits of giving appreciated stock, please consult with a tax professional for information about your personal tax situation.
Can I give company stock outside of the trading window?
Can I make a gift and donate to more than one charity?
Yes, you can contact our Private Client Service team [email protected] to discuss the process to donate to up to 10 charities with a gift of crypto or stock.
Does The Giving Block support gifts from my brokerage account?
The Giving Block supports several brokerage firms via their self-guided platform. If we don’t support your brokerage firm yet, you can still submit your gift through The Giving Block. Just select “other” from the broker list and we will send you a Letter of Instruction you can send to your broker firm to initiate the contribution.
Please note we can process gifts from most brokerage firms that can process a partial stock DTC transfer and most brokerage firms will provide that option for their clients. For any brokerage firms that do not support stock transfer, such as Robinhood, are not supported for this reason.
My brokerage account is not listed on The Giving Block’s Donation Form. Can I still proceed with a donation?
Yes, as a donor you would be required to process your transaction directly with your brokerage firm after selecting “other” from the list of brokers. The Giving Block will send you a Letter of Instruction which can be sent to your broker to initiate the charitable gift transfer.
Is giving through The Giving Block secure?
The Giving Block leads the way in security and compliance. Since its founding, The Giving Block has become the market’s most secure and compliant crypto-donation platform, going above and beyond to ensure your funds and privacy are protected.
How long does it take for The Giving Block to process a donation from when you receive stock?
It depends on several factors. The largest delay is typically your broker firm initiating the transfer of stock. But once they do, it typically takes us 2-3 business days to receive, confirm and liquidate the gift. Once the shares are liquidated the cash proceeds will be wired to the charity you choose. Please remember, the timeline provided is affected by end of the year transaction volume, and holidays.
