Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are very effective charitable giving vehicles whereby donors set aside money to be granted to charitable organizations. You can support Brownpreneurs through a DAF. Just search for Brownpreneurs by our Tax ID number (84-2124618) when processing a DAF grant through your charitable giving account.
Retirement Plans and IRAs
A retirement plan, such as an IRA, can be a smart source for charitable giving. If you are 70½ years or older, an IRA charitable rollover gift allows you to direct up to $100,000 tax-free to Brownpreneurs each year from your traditional IRA, which satisfies your required minimum distribution and reduces your taxable income. Contact your IRA custodian to request a direct distribution to Brownpreneurs. Married taxpayers who meet QCD requirements and file joint returns can donate $100,000 from each spouse’s IRA annually.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies match donations made by their employees to registered nonprofit organizations. We encourage you to inquire from your company if they might be able to match your donation this year. The impact of your gift to Brownpreneurs could potentially be doubled and sometimes even tripled!
