Giving a gift of appreciated assets–stocks, bonds, or mutual funds—to the Coastal Conservation League may provide you with a greater tax benefit and make a bigger impact along our coast.
By donating assets directly to the organization, you may avoid paying capital gains tax on the increased value and your charitable income tax deduction will be equal to the fair market value of the asset.
You may donate appreciated assets in any of the following ways:
- If the stock is held in a brokerage account, you may transfer stock from your broker to our broker, Harrington Bissell, through the Depository Trust Company (DTC).
This is the easiest method for transferring stock. The transfer should be made to:
DTC Clearing #0725 (Raymond James and Associates)
for credit to: A/C 50785215
in the name of Coastal Conservation League
- If you have a stock certificate in your name and wish to donate it, please send the following documents to our broker Terri Dupavillon.
—a signed Raymond James and Associates Stock Power (provided by Raymond James and Associates)
—a signed Letter of Authorization (provided by Raymond James and Associates)
*Please send the stock certificate alone via registered mail. For security purposes, the signed stock power and security release should be sent in a separate envelope. Send to:
Gilchrist/Bissell Wealth Management of Raymond James and Associates & Co., Inc.
FBO Coastal Conservation League- 50785215
360 Concord Street, Suite 210
Charleston SC 29401
Please have your broker notify our staff and our broker of pending transfers, including how many shares of which security are being sent:

*It is very important for you as the donor to inform your broker to share your personal information with our broker so that we can make sure that your gift is acknowledged in a timely manner.
