You can have an extraordinary, positive impact on our entire planet. When you support Population Connection, you contribute to ensuring a more stable and sustainable future for our entire planet. However you choose to support our mission, we are deeply grateful for your generosity.
If you’d like to learn more about any of these ways to give, please email us at email@example.com
Gifts of Stock or Appreciated Securities
The entire value of your gift of stock (including appreciated value) will be tax-deductible. And even better, you’ll avoid all capital gains taxes on any appreciation. In effect, it becomes a double tax savings! We accept stock, bonds, and mutual funds. If you’d like to make a gift of stock, please find more info here!
IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions
If you’re at least 70 ½ years old, you may make a tax-free charitable gift to Population Connection directly from your traditional IRA. Your charitable gifts up to $100,000 a year will be considered part of your required minimum distribution (RMD). You can effectively reduce your taxable income for the year while making a generous gift to support our work. Learn more about IRA QCDs here.
Donor Advised Funds
A donor-advised fund (DAF) provides you with a centralized charitable giving vehicle. DAFs allow individuals, families, and corporations to make irrevocable charitable gifts to nonprofits like Population Connection. You would take an immediate tax deduction upon setting up your DAF with your local community foundation or financial institution, and that institution will make the gifts you designate. Learn more here.
Bequests and Planned Gifts
There is no limit on amounts deductible from federal gift and estate taxes for charitable gifts made by will or trust, so these taxes will not normally be due on assets given in this way. Estate taxes are also imposed by a number of states, and charitable gifts may be exempt from those taxes as well. To plan a charitable bequest, inform your attorney of your wishes when your will is being prepared and ask for advice regarding federal and state tax considerations and the best form for your gift.
If you decide to include a gift in your estate plans, our legal name is Population Connection and our tax ID number is 94-1703155.
Charitable Gift Annuities
Giving through charitable gift annuities can be a very flexible way to make charitable gifts to Population Connection, while at the same time providing a fixed income for life for you and/or others you choose. Charitable gift annuities are easy to establish and can be funded with gifts of relatively modest amounts. Learn more about CGA’s here.
Join the President’s Circle
The President’s Circle is the leadership society of Population Connection. Members contribute annual gifts of $1,000 or more, providing the financial foundation for Population Connection’s advocacy and educational efforts. Learn more here.
Do you have an old vehicle that’s unreliable, unused, or otherwise unwanted? Population Connection accepts vehicles of all types, including boats, RVs, and even airplanes!
