Maximize your impact—and your benefits.

Save more on your taxes.
When you give shares, we make sure to choose the ones with the highest long-term capital gains. This helps you reduce your portfolio's tax liability.

Easily access your donation receipts.
Tax receipts for your donation are always available through your Betterment account. Plus, charities don't have to fill them out and send them to you.

Charities keep every dime.
By donating shares from a Betterment account, you help charities avoid processing fees so they can keep 100% of your gift.

Keep your information secure.
When you donate directly through our platform, you won't have to enter additional financial information on third-party sites.

We serve one purpose.

Whether we're helping customers reach their financial goals, or helping charities find the support they need, our goal remains the same: to help others make the most of their money, so they can live better.
