Give Through Your IRA

You worked hard and planned for retirement. Now, you can leverage your retirement assets to benefit you and your family, reduce your tax burden, and support ORF’s mission.

ORF supporters age 70½+ are choosing to support our mission today, conserve their cash assets, and reduce their taxable income by initiating Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD). When you send your annual or special year-end gift to ORF directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) through a QCD, you exclude the gift amount from your taxable income and enjoy valuable tax savings.

ORF supporters of all ages are also choosing to name ORF a full or partial beneficiary of their IRA, 401(k), 403(b), and other qualified retirement plans. Leaving retirement assets to family can significantly increase their tax burden, but ORF does not pay tax on these gifts, and can put every dollar to work protecting the Ohio River watershed’s future.
