Donor Advised Funds
A Donor Advised Fund, or DAF, is a philanthropic vehicle through which donors may contribute to their favorite charities. Established with organizations such as Fidelity Charitable® or Schwab Charitable, contributions to a DAF are immediately tax-deductible, and are invested and grow tax-free. After establishing a DAF, you may recommend grants to the charities of your choice at any point.
Gifts of Securities
WE CAN Stock Transfer Information
Tax ID #31-1777179
WE CAN Corporation uses Charles Schwab – all stock transfers go to that brokerage.
Most stock gifts come via DTC transfer so the DTC number and WE CAN account information are the most pertinent pieces
Upon receipt of a gift, Michaela Herlihy of Beacon Financial Planning of Cape Cod will contact WE CAN's Treasurer, to get authorization to sell the donated shares.
For donor tax purposes, shares are valued at the median value of the day’s trading on the day the shares are received into the WE CAN account. This is the amount that will appear on the tax documentation from WE CAN to the donor.
Sales are executed on the day the shares are received barring any difficulty Charles Schwab has in contacting WE CAN to authorize a sale.
Proceeds from the sale are then transferred as appropriate given the nature of the gift (e.g. endowment gifts stay with Charles Schwab, Annual Fund gifts would be disbursed to WE CAN).
