Ways to Support

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

Charitable IRA

For those 72 or older (70 ½ if you reach 70 ½ before January 1, 2020), you can improve the lives of our vulnerable neighbors by making a gift directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to Vivalon. Distributions made to charitable organizations will count as part of your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), and will not be considered taxable income.

By making a gift from your retirement account, you can support our community and receive financial benefits. Please be sure to indicate that you are giving through your IRA to receive an acknowledgment for your qualified distribution.
