Via IRA Mandatory Distribution for Charitable Giving

Each year donors age 70 1/2 years or older may make a direct transfer up to $100,000 from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Doing so can be counted toward satisfying the required minimum distribution for the year. A QCD excludes the amount donated from taxable income and can be made at any time during the year.

To give to The Tahoe Donner Giving Fund in this manner, contact your IRA custodian to request a direct transfer be made to the Giving Fund. Be sure your financial institution includes your name in the transmittal information - or have the check sent to you, then you pass it on to us. Send to the address above. Because the Giving Fund is an affiliate fund with the Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation, we use their EIN (68-0416404).

Consult your financial advisor for further assistance.

Via Donor Advised Fund

If you have a Donor Advised Fund you may direct the fund's custodian to make the contribution to TTCF via check or wire (call TTCF at 530.550.7985 for wire instructions). In the transmittal information, please make sure your name is included and that the funds are designated for the Tahoe Donner Giving Fund.

Contributing Other Assets

The Giving Fund, through TTCF, has the ability to receive other assets such as stock that has accumulated value. Contributing the stock may provide the ability to claim a tax deduction on the increased value without paying capital gains taxes. Consult your tax advisor. Contact the Giving Fund at for additional information.
