IRA Gifts

IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions

IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) allow donors, age 70½ or older, to make gifts of up to $100,000 from a traditional IRA to charity. QCDs are made directly from the donor’s IRA account and can be excluded from gross income even if the donor does not itemize each year. QCDs count toward a donor’s required minimum distribution (RMD), when required by the donor’s age. By reducing taxable income, QCDs can lower a donor’s tax bill and may help donors avoid Medicare surcharges. And, as IRA QCDs pass tax-free to charity, 100% of your gift can be used by Audubon Canyon Ranch to continue to protect nature for years to come.

Donate through your Donor Advised Fund

Audubon Canyon Ranch gratefully accepts donations through donor advised funds. Supporters can direct fund advisors to send donations to the address listed below or contact the Development team for further information.

Give a Gift of Stock

By giving appreciated property like stocks or bonds, donors may be able to avoid capital gains taxes and receive a tax deduction for the full value of the gift.

If you wish to donate stock, please:

  • Notify your broker that you are making a charitable gift of stock to Audubon Canyon Ranch.
  • Instruct your broker to transfer the stock into ACR’s account at Morgan Stanley:
    Morgan Stanley
    DTC: 0015
    FBO: Audubon Canyon Ranch
    Account #: 122-056143
  • Inform the ACR Development team. Notifying us enables us to track the stock transfer and acknowledge your gift promptly.
