|Charitable Donations of Company Shares: Initiative by Facebook Founder Puts Stock Donations in the Spotlight|
Dec. 10, 2015
"For year-end donations, be sure the stock transfer is completed by December 31 to make it count for the current tax year. For electronic transfers from your brokerage account, the donation is recorded on the day it is received by the charity/foundation (not when you approve the transfer).... For a charitable donation of company stock acquired from equity compensation, the tax treatment is the same as it is for donations of any stock to a qualified charity."
