Direct IRA distributions to Legal Aid:
Attorney and Legal Aid supporter Diane Foley recently reflected on the impact of giving through an IRA distribution: “I give to Legal Aid because I deeply appreciate what it does for people who really need an attorney, who need help with matters that mean more than anything; a roof overhead, stability during a family crisis, or accessing critical benefits. Legal Aid’s compassion for the community is unmatched.”

“Donating through a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from an IRA account is simple. I work with my financial advisor – the administrator of my IRA accounts – to make sure the designated organizations receive my gifts, and the advisor does the rest. It’s as simple as listing the nonprofits I want to support, along with the amount of each gift. My advisor then issues checks from my IRA distributions directly to the nonprofits in accordance with IRS regulations.”

Don’t forget about your Donor Advised Fund:
Consult with the administrator of your DAF to direct funds to Legal Aid. The check will go directly to Legal Aid from the third-party administrator – which means no hassle for you!

The gift that keeps on giving – endowed funds:
Legal Aid has several endowed funds that create long-term sustainability for the organization. Reach out to Legal Aid to learn more!

Plan your legacy today:
Create a better tomorrow by including Legal Aid in your estate plan through a bequest and become a member of The 1905 Society. Consult with your attorney or financial professional about this option today, and contact Legal Aid to let us know your plans.
