Should you donate cash or stock to charity?

You can sell your stock and then donate what’s left over after you pay capital gains tax, or you can donate securities directly. But with the second option, you get a bigger deduction and the charity gets a bigger donation.

To donate stock to the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County please use the information listed here on this page, and follow up with Jessica Lavin, Director of Development, at (561) 472-3340 or

Please include donor name, address, phone, contact information, date of donation, and description of stock so we can properly acknowledge your gift.
