WWF works to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife, collaborating with partners from local to global levels in nearly 100 countries.
Other Ways to Support WWF
As you think about the nature and wildlife you love so much and how you can protect them, 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.
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.
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 reduce your capital gains tax liability on the transfer and claim a charitable tax deduction as well.
Looking to make a powerful impact on wildlife without affecting your monthly budget? If you are 70 ½ or older and have a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you are eligible to make a gift from your IRA to WWF. These gifts, called Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs – also known as IRA Charitable Rollovers), can be made whether or not you itemize your deductions on your tax return. In many cases, these gifts are 100% tax-free, allowing you to protect wildlife without increasing your taxable income.
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.
So that we may accurately record your gift, provide your tax receipt, and acknowledge you properly, please take the extra step of contacting us at 1-800-960-0993 or [email protected] to let us know your gift is on its way. This will augment the information provided by your financial institution and ensure smooth processing of your gift.
