Give through your Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

Giving through a donor-advised fund (DAF) is an increasingly popular way for donors to make gifts to VoteAmerica and other charities. VoteAmerica accepts gifts from all DAF platforms. You’ll need VoteAmerica’s tax ID number (TIN) to make a gift via your DAF. Our tax ID number (TIN) is 84-3442002.

Giving securities can be an ideal way of supporting VoteAmerica. Donating stock is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. Your donation will help us deliver on our mission, and you may benefit from a charitable deduction equal to the full value of the stock. You can donate stock to VoteAmerica via our partner, Stockdonator.com.

Donating crypto is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support your favorite cause. If you want to learn more about how donating crypto can lower your taxes, check out thegivingblock.com/faq. Through our cryptocurrency fundraising initiative with The Giving Block we can accept multiple cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and other cryptocurrencies including: Amp (AMP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Chainlink (LINK), Dai (DAI), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Litecoin (LTC), Storj (STORJ), UMA (UMA), Zcash (ZEC) and 0x (ZRX). Please consider how you can make a difference – donate crypto to us today to help strengthen democracy.

Make a gift directly from your IRA

Giving from your IRA is a smart way to achieve your charitable goals and receive income tax benefits. Current tax law allows you to donate to VoteAmerica and other charities directly from your individual retirement account starting at age 70.5. This is called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). These donations can be made from the following IRAs: Traditional IRA, Rollover IRA, Inherited IRA, SEP IRA (inactive only), and SIMPLE IRA (inactive only). You cannot make a Qualified Charitable Distribution from a 401(k), 403(b) or Keogh plan during your lifetime.

Qualified Charitable Distributions reduce your income that is taxed when you have to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) starting at age 72. You can make QCDs up to $100,000 each year, and the amount will be excluded from gross income.

One important note: under the new SECURE Act, you can make a QCD at age 70.5 even though you do not have to take a RMD until age 72. In fact, if you think you will face significant taxes when your RMD begins at age 72, making QCDs beginning at 70.5 can reduce the overall amount in your IRA.

To make a gift to VoteAmerica from your IRA, follow these steps:

  1. Consider your finances and charitable goals. If you are or coming up to the age of 72 and face RMDs, factor in how receiving your RMD will impact your overall income and, therefore, your taxes.
  2. Contact your IRA trustee to find out more about its process for arranging qualified charitable distributions.
  3. Notify your IRA trustee that you want to make a qualified charitable distribution, and fill out the required paperwork from the trustee. Please instruct them to provide your name and address on the QCD paperwork so we can provide the required receipt needed for your taxes.
  4. The check should be made to VoteAmerica, Inc. and mailed directly to:
VoteAmerica, Inc
Attn: Daniel McCarthy
1213 Walnut Street, #2402
Philadelphia, PA 19107
  1. Contact us at finance@voteamerica.com when you’ve directed the gift. When we receive it, we’ll provide the required receipt.
