Dear Marriage Supporter,
Double Your Tax-Deductible Gift!
Much of our work at NOM is focused on changing laws and influencing public policy. That's why gifts to our main organization are not tax-deductible.
But we also do a ton of work on education. While we have been focused on raising the funds necessary to fight the political fight ahead, we know we have so much to do to change our culture and equip people to promote and defend the truth of marriage through our 501 (c) 3 organization, the NOM Education Fund.
Luckily, our $200,000 challenge grant also applies to tax-deductible gifts. With two days left before year-end, here are two simple ways to take advantage of making a tax deductible gift.
Make an Online or Mail Gift to the NOM Education Fund
The simplest method is to give online by clicking here. All donations are deductible for federal-income tax purposes. If you have a foundation or donor advised fund you can mail a gift to: NOM Education Fund, 2029 K Street, NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20006. As long as the gift is postmarked by tomorrow, it will count for the match.
IRA Charitable Rollover
The IRA Charitable Rollover provision allows individuals who have reached age 70 ½ to donate up to $100,000 per year to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA) without treating the distribution as taxable income. To take advantage of this recent legislation for the year 2015, individuals must make the gift directly from their IRA to the NOM Education Fund on or before December 31, 2015.
Although there are some excluded organizations under this legislation, the National Organization for Marriage Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) corporation, is qualified to receive these IRA charitable rollover distributions.
To qualify under this law, it is important that the donation from your IRA be distributed directly to us and not distributed to you first. For those with check writing privileges on their accounts, this may be the most efficient way to make gifts directly from an IRA.
Here is the information you will need to provide to your IRA representative:
Name of Charity: National Organization for Marriage Education Fund
Address of the Charity: 2029 K Street, NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20006
Tax ID No. 20-7472471
P.S. One other thing. I have heard from many donors that are inspired that a few major donors have the faith in us to commit larger gifts to these matches.
If you are looking at making a larger gift out of your personal funds, foundation, IRA or through your estate planning and would like to challenge us to match it, just let us know and we will plan for another matching program. For us, the matching program is not a gimmick, but what keeps us fighting for you. To commit to launching a matching grant or to learn more, call Justin Haas, Executive Director, at (202)-618-8959
God bless you!
