Investment Giving

Qualified Charitable Distributions from IRA

For those age 73 and above, a QCD to LIRS fulfills your annual required minimum distribution (RMD). Contact your financial advisor to make a gift to LIRS (EIN 13-2574854). 

Donor-Advised Fund 
Keep LIRS in mind as you make annual disbursements from your donor-advised fund (DAF). 
Gifts of Stock or Securities

Receive an immediate income tax deduction with a gift of stock or securities to LIRS. You might also save on capital gains taxes that normally accrue at the time of sale. 

To ensure that you receive a tax receipt, please contact LIRS before you transfer stocks by emailing or calling 410-230-2858. 

You may donate cryptocurrency or stocks directly from your crypto wallet or stock portfolio.
