Nominate your advisor
You may also nominate your advisor to open and manage your account
Schwab Charitable account holders may nominate an independent investment advisor to manage their account. Please contact your advisor if you want to get started with this option.
Once your new account is open, you may make an irrevocable contribution of $5000 or more in the form of cash or non-cash assets like securities, publicly traded stock or even real estate.
