When you make a bequest to Breastcancer.org, you ensure that the next generation will receive access to expert information, vital resources, and a comforting community to help them through a breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and beyond.

Ensure a better future

Naming Breastcancer.org in your will as a beneficiary can be one of the simplest and tax-wise ways to make a gift. Bequests can be set up for a specific amount or as a percentage of the remainder of your estate and can be made in the form of cash, stocks, or real estate.

Non-binding language to help when planning

"I give to Breastcancer.org, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, located in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, organized and existing under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the sum of $_______ [or ______% of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate] to be used for its general purpose."

A charitable bequest can also be designated for a specific purpose. It is best to have both the designation and the language approved by Breastcancer.org to avoid any potential difficulties in the execution of the will, and to ensure that Breastcancer.org meets your gift intention.

Qualified Charitable Distributions From an IRA

Turn your mandatory distribution into a gift for Breastcancer.org!

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) allows individuals who are 70½ years old or older to donate up to $100,000 total to one or more charities directly from a taxable IRA instead of taking their required minimum distributions. For married couples, each spouse can make QCDs up to the $100,000 limit for a potential total of $200,000.

A distribution must be made directly from the trustee/administrator of your IRA directly to Breastcancer.org, satisfying the required minimum distribution rule (you cannot receive the distribution prior to gifting to charity without incurring tax liability). No charitable deduction is allowed, but the distribution is excluded from your income for federal tax purposes.

If you are interested, contact your IRA administrator and ask them to make a charitable distribution to Breastcancer.org. Include Breastcancer.org's Federal Tax Identification Number: 23-3082851.

For a QCD to count toward your minimum annual IRA distribution, it must be made by the same deadline as a normal distribution, which is usually December 31 of the tax year in question.
