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 is excluded from taxable income, but certain limitations may apply. QCD’s can be made at any time during the year. Please note: For 2020 IRA distributions are not mandatory; however, QCD’s from the IRA are still excluded from taxable income. Consult with your financial or tax advisor.
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. Because the Giving Fund is an affiliate fund with the Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation (TTCF), we use their EIN (68-0416404)and checks should be mailed to TTCF, P. O. Box 366, Truckee, Ca 96160.
Consult with your financial and tax advisors 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.
CORPORATE GIFT MATCHING
Does your employer offer a donation matching program? If so, there are two ways to make that happen, 1) follow the process established by the company where you work, or 2) donate to the Giving Fund online via credit card, click the Gift Matching option, select your company, and Amply will do the rest – it is an easy one-step option for your convenience.
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 TahoeDonnerCares@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
