Tax Smart Giving

Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are a smart way to manage your charitable gift giving. Setting up a DAF with a commercial or community provider allows you to take an immediate tax deduction, which allows you to then recommend grants to charities like Mary’s Meals.  

Give Through Your IRA

Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD) is a tax efficient way for those 70 ½ or over to donate from their IRA, which counts towards your Required Minimum Donation (RMD).

Give Stocks

By donating stocks, bonds or mutual funds you can benefit from a tax deduction for the full value of the stock.  If the donated stock is fully appreciated (held for more than one year) you do not pay capital gains tax on the sale.  

Make a Gift in Your Will

By leaving a gift in your will, no matter how big or small, you will help us provide life-changing meals to some of the world’s poorest children every school day. We have partnered with FreeWill, which allows you to write a free legal will online. 

Matching Gifts

You can increase your charitable donation to Mary’s Meals through matching gifts, a benefit many companies offer to their employees. Most participating companies match employee donations dollar for dollar, while some even double or triple match donations.
