More Ways to Give

IRA Rollover

By taking a distribution from your IRA this year, you will likely pay more in taxes and may even reach a higher tax bracket. Rolling over part of your IRA's "required minimum distribution" or "RMD" to a charity like ours can help reduce your tax bill while supporting our cause.

If you are 70½ or older and don't need your RMD, you can make a gift of up to $100,000 this year from your IRA to help further our mission. Compare the impact of taking your RMD versus the benefits of making an IRA charitable rollover gift to us.

Ending the Year Well

Here are some ways you can shift tax dollars to charitable dollars and support a cause like ours.

  • IRA Charitable Rollover
  • Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
  • Outright Gift of an Asset
  • Zero-Tax Gift and Sale
