Donor-Advised Funds, Stock Donations
and IRA Distribution

Donor-Advised Funds
Put Your Charitable Dollars to Work!

If you have a Donor-Advised Fund, it’s time to invest in For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation! A Donor-Advised Fund, or DAF, allows you as a donor to receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. If you have a DAF, you can contribute to the fund as frequently as you would like and recommend grants to FPS when it makes sense! You become a “donor advisor” and retain advisory privileges over the investment allocation for the DAF.

Donations from a DAF can be made to any charitable organizations that are listed as tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3) and public charities under IRS Section 509(a). Grants can also be made to private operating foundations or state or local government organizations qualified to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions. Please utilize the form provided to your right for your ease of use to allocate your DAF to invest in FPS!

IRA Distribution

For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation qualifies as a charitable organization eligible to receive a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD).  The QCD allows you to make a charitable donation via a direct transfer from your IRA.  Making a QCD is as simple as contacting your investment advisor and instructing them to transfer your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) directly to For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation.

You can also go to our donation page and select “BANK ACCOUNT” to donate your QCD directly to For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation.

If you have any questions about the above methods of giving, please call our office at 267-708-0510 or email info@takeabreakfromcancer.org.
