Smart Giving Suite
Interested in donating to Limbs for Life? Thank you in advance! Generous donors like you enable us to do what we do. Whether you’re looking to make a grant request from your donor-advised fund, to donate stock or to give directly from your IRA or cryptocurrency wallet, our Smart Giving Suite can help!
Donor Advised Funds – DAF Gifts
Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations. If you have a DAF, you can use FreeWill’s DAF tool to support Limbs for Life.
FreeWill’s DAF tool empowers you to make a targeted impact by recommending how you’d like your grant to be allocated, communicating your wishes to Limbs for Life, sharing the details of your DAF grant, and navigating to your DAF provider. It’s also a great way to ensure our organization has consistent financial support while saving cash for immediate needs.
Gifts of Stock
Stock or Mutual Fund Shares that you’ve owned for more than one year are excellent charitable gifts. Donating stocks allows you to avoid the capital gains tax and if you itemize deductions, you can also take a charitable deduction for the entire donation amount. We’ve invested in this secure online tool that enables you to donate your appreciated assets in 10 minutes.
Qualified Charitable Donation – Give from your IRA
If you are 70 1/2 or older and have a traditional IRA, you can use this secure online tool to make a donation from your IRA account. IRA gifts are generally not recognized as taxable income and if you must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) this year, giving from your IRA is a compassionate way to fulfill it. Using this online tool, you can learn more and fill out the forms from your IRA custodian in just a few minutes, or print out the forms to fill them out offline.
We now accept donations of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies! This gives us one more way to fund our work and can provide you with extra tax benefits.
