Giving to charity

After you’ve funded your Schwab Charitable™ account, you can recommend grants of $50 or more to any IRS-designated 501(c)(3) charity.

To recommend a grant online, just log in to your account or use the Schwab Mobile app.¹ You can then recommend a new grant recipient or use express granting for a charity you’ve previously designated, which streamlines the process and saves you time.

You may also recommend a grant by completing a Recommend a Grant to Charity form and returning it by fax or mail.

You can customize your donations with personalized grant letterhead—featuring the name of your account—or choose to remain anonymous.

International giving

We have a number of ways to accommodate international giving. To make the process easier, more efficient, and less costly, we offer guidance from our International Granting Specialists.

Granting guidelines

Donor-advised fund accounts can facilitate almost all of your charitable giving, but there are some restrictions for events or memberships if you derive personal benefit from them.
