Tips for year-end giving
  • Contribute from your IRA – There are a number of tax advantages to make retirement plan assets or life insurance work for you and causes you support (Note: IRAs cannot be distributed to a donor advised fund).
  • Give now, decide later – Claim a deduction on contributions to a fund now, and distribute the gift later.
  • Talk to your advisor – Understand the impact on your taxes and estate by consulting with your advisor.
  • Let WF do the legwork – We’ll help you stay informed of the organizations you support. Need ideas on where to give? View the list of featured funds, such as Field of Interest Funds, that accept online donations. You can also contact with questions on local nonprofit needs.
