Ways To Give
A stock portfolio is often among the most valuable assets you own — and one that can carry substantial capital gains, or appreciation in value. With careful planning, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains tax while supporting our work.

DTC # 0226

IRA Charitable Rollover
The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (PATH) was signed into law by President Obama on December 18, 2015, permanently extending the IRA charitable rollover. Individuals aged 70½ and older are able to donate up to $100,000 to Pacific Science Center and other charitable organizations directly from their IRA, without treating the distribution as taxable income. In order to qualify, contributions must go directly to a public charity and be made from traditional IRAs or Roth IRAs.
To learn more about giving though your IRA, please contact Rob Wiseman, Director of Individual Giving at email@example.com or (206) 443-4624.
Donor Advised Funds
Make a gift through a Donor Advised Fund (DAF), an increasingly popular charitable vehicle that provides flexibility in supporting your favorite causes with favorable tax benefits. Donor Advised Funds may have prohibitions against certain types of donor benefits. Please contact Rob Wiseman, Director of Individual Giving, for assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 443-4624.
Already have a Donor Advised Fund? Use the DAF Direct tool below to get started on your donation to Pacific Science Center.
