Nature is dynamic. So are the ways you can support it.
As you think about the nature and wildlife you love so much and how you can protect it, rather than write a check or donate online, why not take the opportunity to explore some other ways to support WWF? These increasingly popular options are not only efficient ways to give, but may also provide you with significant tax savings. Take a look and contact us with any questions.
A Gift of Stock
If you’re looking for a tax-smart way to meet the needs of both people and nature, consider a gift of stock. When you give appreciated stock that you’ve owned for more than one year, you may be able to avoid paying capital gains tax on the transfer and claim a charitable tax deduction as well.
Give Through Your Donor Advised Fund
Use your fund as a tool to make a one-time or recurring grant to benefit WWF immediately, or use it to establish future charitable gifts.
Qualified Charitable Distributions from your IRA
Looking to save on your taxes while making a powerful impact on wildlife? If you are 70 ½ or older and have an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you are eligible to make a tax-free gift from your IRA to WWF. These gifts, called Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs – also known as an IRA Charitable Rollover), can be made whether or not you itemize your deductions on your tax return.
Charitable Gift Annuity
When you use cash or other assets to establish a charitable gift annuity at WWF, you’ll receive secure, fixed payments for life for you and/or someone you choose – and you’ll also receive tax benefits. After your lifetime(s), the remaining balance will help reduce the most pressing threats to life on Earth.
