Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)
A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to YouthPower365 and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.
For more information on DAFs please contact Director of Development, Euginnia Seyferth at 970.777.2015 or email@example.com.
IRA Charitable Rollover
Are you 70 1/2 years of age or older? If so, the IRA Charitable Rollover is a tax-smart and increasingly popular way of support non-profits. This permanent provision of the tax code allows you to transfer all or a portion of the required minimum distribution (RMD) directly to YouthPower365.
A charitable rollover of IRA funds to YouthPower365 will not count as taxable income in the year you make your gift, which may keep you in a lower tax bracket. Your gift to YouthPower365 counts toward your RMD. And you save taxes whether you claim the standard deduction or itemize.
Have you heard about ReFUND CO? A new state tax refund donation program allows you to use some or all of your refund to directly support our work in the community! Consider a donation to YouthPower365 through your Colorado Tax Refund!
When the taxpayer has determined that they will get a Colorado refund, they will use the “Voluntary Contributions” schedule to choose an eligible nonprofit. Taxpayers should look for the new additional option of “Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit Fund”.
For more information on donating to YouthPower365 through a Tax Refund please contact Euginnia Seyferth at 970.777.2015 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
