PayPal & Check Donations

Donate from your IRA Required Minimum Distribution
If you are 70.5 years or older and have an IRA, please consider donating from your RMD to OARS tax-free before year-end.

If you donate as a tax-free transfer, your donation counts toward your required minimum distribution and does not increase your adjusted gross income. Therefore, you will not pay any federal or state income taxes on the value of the donation. Note you must have the RMD donation sent directly to OARS at 23 Bradford Street, Concord, MA 01742.

OARS' Federal EIN (Tax ID) number is 04-2963426.

Donate Appreciated Assets
Highly appreciated securities may be good candidates to give to charity during your lifetime; in addition to the income tax deduction, you bypass the capital gains tax you would owe if you cashed them in yourself.
