For questions regarding your company’s programs, contact your employer’s HR or community giving department. Much of the information may be  available on your company intranet.


IRA Disbursements or Qualified Charitable Deductions (QCD)

IRA Charitable Rollover Supporters 70.5 or older with a traditional IRA can donate all or a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and save on income tax. By transferring funds directly from your IRA to Children’s Council of San Francisco, called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), you will reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize. 

You can use our online tool to make your tax-free donation online, print out the forms to complete the gift offline, or learn more about the benefits of giving from your IRA. Learn more about IRA donations today!

You may also contact your IRA administrator with our TAX ID#94-2221305 and request that your name be noted on the check.

Please notify Eileen Morris, Director of Major Gifts and Planned Giving via email or 415.343.3352 with your name, the number of shares and the stock name so that we can acknowledge your generosity.
