Donate Stock or Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD)

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of stock are a valuable source of support for RAINN’s programs and services. To donate stocks, bonds, or mutual funds to RAINN, you can:

Giving a gift of stock has significant tax advantages and offers many financial benefits, as well as flexibility.

  • Flexible options: You can donate stock, mutual funds, and bonds.
  • Lower taxes: You can deduct the total current value of your donated securities.
  • No capital gains taxes: Instead of selling stocks that have appreciated and donating the proceeds, you can donate the stock to RAINN and pay no capital gains tax on the appreciation.

Qualified Charitable Distributions

IRA Charitable Rollovers, also known as Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs), are the savviest way for individuals ages 70.5 or older to use their Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to maximize their charitable impact. Donate directly from your IRA for tax benefits and higher charitable impact, quickly and easily.
