Donating appreciated stock is one of the easiest ways to give more to causes you care about.

Why? Because donating stock directly to charity is one of the most tax-smart ways to give. Yet, it is often not well understood or widely used. According to a 2016 study by Fidelity Charitable, 80% of donors own appreciated assets, such as stocks, mutual funds or bonds, but only 21% of those donors have contributed these types of assets to charity.

Here are four reasons you should give a stock donation to Chabad a try:

  1. You can give more

  2. You can potentially reduce future capital gains liability

  3. You can give your portfolio a health check

  4. You can donate stocks without headaches
