Gifts That Reduce Taxes

Make an Immediate Gift Through Your IRA

You can now make a gift from your IRA directly to IPPF/WHR. This gift opportunity is now available permanently!

If you are 70½ or older, you may give up to $100,000 using funds from your IRA to IPPF/WHR. While you are not entitled to an income tax charitable deduction for the gift, it will count towards your minimum required distribution* for the year and you will not have to pay federal income tax on the withdrawn amount.

* Congress has waived the annual Required Minimum Distribution from IRA Accounts in the year 2020 as part of the CARES Act in response to COVID-19. Please consider seeking advice from your financial advisor or tax professional to understand how recent changes to laws governing retirement plans may impact you and your charitable gift.

TO MAKE AN IMMEDIATE GIFT FROM YOUR IRA, please instruct your plan provider to make a direct transfer from your traditional IRA or Roth IRA to:

International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region
Office of Planned Giving
125 Maiden Lane, 9th Floor
New York, NY 10038
Tax ID 13-1845455

PLEASE CONTACT: Eric Bebernitz at 212.248.6400 or to let us know about your gift so that we can ensure you receive the appropriate receipt as well as our sincere gratitude.

Gifts By Beneficiary Designation

Naming IPPF/WHR as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance policy, brokerage or bank account is a generous way to support our shared vision for future generations.

Qualified retirement plans and life insurance policies are non-probate assets. This means you can make a gift through a beneficiary designation, even if you don’t have a will. Any remaining amount, or the insurance proceeds, will be distributed to the people and/or organizations you’ve named as beneficiaries.

You can request a Change of Beneficiary Form from your plan administrator and add IPPF/WHR as a full or partial beneficiary with the following information:

International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region
Tax ID Number: 13-1845455

Since we are a tax-exempt organization, 100% of your gift passes to IPPF/WHR. Beneficiary designations can be changed at any time and for any reason. We deeply respect your right to do so.

Beneficiaries Your Heirs IPPF/WHR
Gift Amount $100,000 $100,000
Income Tax* ($37,000) -0-
Net to Beneficiary $63,000 $100,000

Many states allow you to name an organization as a beneficiary of almost any financial account: brokerage, savings, checking, credit union savings, etc. As with your retirement plan, you can contact your account administrator for a Change of Beneficiary Form.
