A larger gift and a larger deduction.

When donating stock, please consider a gift of appreciated stock. If you donate stock that has been held for a year and has increased in value since owned (and if you itemize deductions), you can take a charitable deduction for the stock’s fair market value on the day you donate. You’ll also avoid capital gains taxes on the increase in value over time.
