Optimize your Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
Do you want to optimize your Donor Advised Fund? One potential benefit of a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is that you can “bunch” several years’ worth of your charitable donations into one tax year with instructions to distribute the funds to Friends of PAC and your other favorite charities over multiple years. You could get a larger charitable deduction this year and have a plan in place for future giving. To request a gift from your Donor Advised Fund, use our secure link to the right.
Charitable Distribution From IRA
Have you already turned 70½? If you are 70 ½ years old or older, you can directly transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA to Friends of PAC or other eligible organization tax-free. Married couples who file jointly can transfer up to $200,000. Plus, because the assets go directly to Friends of PAC from your IRA administrator, you won’t have to record the distribution as income. What a great way to make a dramatic impact for the Pinedale Aquatic Center. Find sample language to request a charitable distribution from your IRA at the link to the right.
