Give from your IRA

If you are 70 1/2 years or older, you can make a gift to NETWORK Advocates directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA), and it won’t count towards your taxable income for the year– up to $100,000 per taxpayer per year.

Qualified charitable distributions must be transferred directly from your IRA custodian to NETWORK Advocates by December 31 in order to be counted as qualified charitable distributions.

As with all gifts of this nature, you should consult with your financial/tax advisor. If you have additional questions, please contact Maggie Brevig at [email protected] or (202) 601-7864.

Employer Gift Matching

You can double or even triple your impact when your employer participates in a matching gift program. Many companies encourage charitable giving among their employees through matching gift programs.  Gifts made by current employees, employees’ spouses, and even retirees may be eligible for matching support.

Contact your employer’s human resources department to see if they have a matching gift program. If this option is available to you, be sure to search for and indicate “NETWORK Education Program” or use the tax ID number: 52-1307764.

Workplace Giving

If you are a federal employee, you can support NETWORK’s ministry of justice by participating in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Many state and local governments — and even some private corporations — offer payroll deduction programs that may allow you to make gifts to NETWORK. Your tax-deductible gifts will support the Institute’s work of research and education.

Name to look for in the CFC:  Nuns on the Bus (NETWORK Education Program)

Tax ID number: 52-1307764
