IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions
Give from your IRA
If you are 70.5 or older and have a traditional IRA, you can use this secure online tool to make a donation from your IRA account to support conservation.
IRA gifts are generally not recognized as taxable income and may count toward meeting your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). If you must take an RMD this year, giving from your IRA is a compassionate way to fulfill it.

- You can fill out the forms from your IRA in just a few minutes online, or print the forms to fill them out offline.
After you have completed the transfer, please let us know the arrangements that you have made, so we can acknowledge your gift promptly.
