Forms and applications for advisors
Schwab Charitable offers two types of accounts:
- Core accounts: The funds are invested in a selection of prescreened, competitive investment pools. There is no minimum contribution amount required, so it's simple to open an account and experience how easy it is to give through Schwab CharitableTM.
- Professionally managed accounts: For accounts with balances of $100,000 or more, advisors can create a customized investment portfolio and may charge an advisory fee to manage the assets in the account.*
Once your client is ready to open their Schwab Charitable account, you can assist them with the application process.
