There are couple of charities to whom I donate 1% of my income every year. Now that I have some appreciated stocks in my taxable portfolio, I could donate appreciated stock instead of cash. My question is about the mechanics. Do I ask my broker -- Fidelity -- to provide me with a certificate for x shares, which I can then mail to the charity. I assume there will be a fee for that.Or do the big brokers all have a standard way to transfer shares from one person to another account, with all the big charities having an arrangement with every major broker?If anyone has experience doing this, I would appreciate your views on the easiest and cheapest way to make the donation.Thanks.Francis
