Stock Donations as Legacy Gifts

Donate Stocks

One of the biggest tax advantages in charitable giving continues to be the double benefit donors get when donating appreciated assets to Carolina Day School instead of cash. By giving appreciated assets (like stocks held for more than one year), you'll get a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the asset and avoid any capital gains tax that would have applied if you had sold the stock and made your gift in cash.

Please provide the following information in your request when directing your broker to transfer your shares to CDS:

  • Carolina Day School
  • 1345 Hendersonville Road
  • Ashville, NC  28803
  • EIN: 56-0125490
  • CDS's DTC Number: 0141
  • CDS's Account Name: Wells Fargo Advisors
  • CDS's FBO Account Number: 2130-0672

It is important to notify Carolina Day School of the specifics of this transaction (stock name, share quantity, gift designation) so we can credit your gift appropriately. Please contact us at (828) 407.4443 or smorrison@carolinaday.org.
