Non-probate Assets

You may have additional assets not covered in your will or trust, such as an IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, or any additional accounts. These are called “non-probate assets,” and they need to be planned for separately. Using the secure online tool, you can log all of your assets, name FFRF as beneficiary, and receive printable instructions on how to set each one up with your broker.

IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER

If you are age 70 1/2 or older, you may now donate up to $100,000 to FFRF as a qualifying 501(c)(3) charitable organization directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). The distribution will not be treated as taxable income, provided the distribution is made directly.

To qualify, contributions must come from a traditional IRA or Roth IRA, and they must be made directly to a public charity. Additionally, the donor may not receive goods or services in exchange for the donation, and they must retain a receipt from each charity to which a donation is made.

Because it is available to taxpayers whether or not they itemize their tax returns, the rollover helps older Americans, who are more likely not to file itemized returns.

FFRF will send a “non-tax” letter receipt that documents your lovely charitable rollover gift! Thank you so much.

MATCHING GRANTS

Matching grant donations have become a significant boost to FFRF in recent years. Many companies offer to match (fully or a percentage) their employees’ donations to charitable organizations. These matches multiply the impact of the initial donation to further the goals of the Foundation. Membership dues and donations are tax-deductible contributions and may be submitted to matching gift programs upon organization approval.

Review a database of companies with gift matching policies for employees here.

FFRF receives Charity Navigator’s highest 4-star rating. Donations to FFRF are deductible for income-tax purposes to the fullest extent of the law.
