IRAs, Stocks, and Securities
The Institute for Creation Research is grateful for, and well-equipped to receive, gifts of IRAs, publicly traded stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
The popular IRA Charitable Rollover was reinstated by Congress on January 1, 2013. Applicable for 2012 and 2013, the law allows traditional or Roth IRA owners age 70½ or older to make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) up to $100,000 each year to qualified charities like ICR without declaring it as income. Such IRA gifts also count toward required minimum withdrawals (RMD), providing a rare twofold opportunity to support ICR while avoiding taxes on income that might otherwise be required.
This is an excellent opportunity to practice good stewardship and support tax-exempt organizations like ICR that God has laid on your heart. IRA gifts are easy to make, so if this opportunity is right for you, please contact your IRA administrator and provide the following information:
- Legal Name: Institute for Creation Research
- Federal Identification Number: 95-3523177
- Address: 1806 Royal Lane, Dallas, TX 75229
Stocks and Securities
The sale of appreciated stocks, bonds, and mutual funds can often create a significant tax burden at tax time. Avoid the tax burden by gifting shares directly to ICR. Shares that have been held for at least one year can be given to ICR, providing significant tax savings by allowing the donor to deduct the full market value from income tax while also avoiding capital gains tax—a wonderful “double” benefit to both ICR and to you.
Contact ICR for our brokerage account information and let us help you facilitate your gift. Please call our Business Department at 800.337.0375 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a federally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit ministry, all gifts to ICR are completely tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
