More Ways To Give

IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts (Qualified Charitable Distributions)

If you own an IRA, you can make a tax-free transfer to Greenbelt Alliance this year and into the future. The 2018 tax law updates offer added incentive to make a tax-free gift of Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA to charity. Even if you don’t itemize, you’ll get a tax benefit from your IRA rollover gift while taking advantage of higher standard deductions. IRA owners, age 70 1/2 or older, can use some or all of their RMD to make a gift to charity. By reducing taxable income, IRA gifts can lower your tax bill, and Greenbelt Alliance can use 100% of your IRA gift to protect the Bay Area’s open spaces and advocate for smart growth development.

IRA Rollover gifts are easy to arrange. Simply direct your plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA account directly to Greenbelt Alliance (Tax ID – 94-1676747) and contact us to indicate you are making a gift. Please include your name, the name of your IRA administrator, and the amount of your distribution. For questions or to learn more, contact us at 415-543-6771 ext. 302 or give@greenbelt.org.

Tribute or Honorary Gifts

We would be honored to remember or honor a special person in your life. You can make a memorial or honorary gift online or by phone and we will notify the honoree or their loved ones and recognize them in our annual report. Please indicate if you’d like to make a memorial or honorary gift and the name of the honoree when you donate online.

Support The Farms and Ranches Forever Campaign in Honor of John Chapman

Since 1984, more than 200,000 acres of Bay Area farmland—an area six times the size of San Francisco—have been lost to sprawl development. Greenbelt Alliance is spurring county policies to protect agriculture and help local farmers and ranchers succeed. Please join us in protecting the future of our Bay Area agricultural lands. This campaign honors the legacy of our late board president, John Chapman, who loved and fought for Bay Area farms and ranches all his life. Learn more about our Farms and Ranches Forever campaign or support our annual Farms and Ranches Forever Fest.
