Stocks are down since the coronavirus hit, but that doesn't have to present a hurdle for charitable giving. In fact, with the CARES Act, opportunities for giving from your investment portfolio could be better than ever.

Even during a downturn, donating stock may be one way to achieve that goal and support the nonprofits that are tirelessly serving our communities during this time of urgent need.
