Ways to Support
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)
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.
How to Give
Use FreeWill’s free and easy online tool to make your donation online, print out the forms you need to complete the gift offline, or learn more about the benefits of giving from your IRA.
