Additional Way to Give to NCC:

Make a future gift in your Will

In as little as one sentence, you can make a meaningful gift to ensure that NCC’s work for Christian unity, peace, and justice continues into the future. For example, “I give, devise, and bequeath to the National Council of Churches in Christ USA (NCC), a not-for-profit organization located at 110 Maryland Avenue, Suite #108, Washington, DC 20002, _____ percent (%) of my gross estate (or $_____) for the NCC’s general purposes.” Consult with your estate attorney to add NCC to your Will.

Make a gift from your IRA

The IRA Charitable Rollover allows donors 70½ or older to make a gift to a charitable organization. If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to make a contribution and receive tax benefits in return. You can give any amount up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to qualified organizations such as NCC without having to pay income taxes on the money. This type of gift is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short. Since the gift doesn’t count as income, it can reduce your annual income level. Before considering this type of gift, you should contact your financial advisor in order to understand your IRA requirements and your specific tax situation which will determine if this type of gift would benefit you.

Make a gift from a Donor Advised Fund

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 NCC and other qualified charities. When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity and set up a fund, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity. Your recommendation can be for a grant or recurring grant to make an immediate impact with NCC or you can use your fund for future charitable gifts.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Corporate Matching Gifts are gifts made by your employer to match your personal gift to NCC. A dollar-for-dollar match is common, but some companies contribute two or even three dollars for each dollar an employee gives. Check to see if your company matches.

National Council of Churches in Christ USA (NCC) is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered in New York. Gifts to NCC are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
