This is a commendable thing to do, but, I can't see where 2 weeks or so in the market is apt to make much difference and any difference is perhaps equally likely to be negative as well as positive.I would like to keep the money in the market for as many days as possible.
My experience has been that Vanguard writes the checks to the charity but mails them to you to forward on to the charity.Yes, the broker (such as Vanguard) will write out the checks to charity as you request and you will hand them or send them to the charity.
I don't doubt there are investors who take a number of questionable (in my mind) deductions. That doesn't make if correct per the IRS.I spoke to my step-son who is an AUM investment advisor, he says he has clients who take mutual fund ERs as deductible investment expenses.
