Make a Stock Donation

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation gratefully accepts stock donations through Charles Schwab. Potential benefits include:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction

To help you facilitate a gift of stock, please use the following simple steps:

Step 1 - Initiate the Stock Transfer

Securities can be gifted to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation in two ways: either via electronic transfer (in which your broker transfers shares using the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation DTC number) or by physically mailing the paper certificates to ALSF. Either method is acceptable, but it is necessary for you to contact your broker to initiate an electronic transfer.

To mail physical certificates please contact Jay Scott, [email protected] to get instructions and the paperwork necessary.
