Aside from making a donation to The Foundling online or by check, The Foundling also accepts gifts of appreciated stock (which can minimize capital gains taxes), wire transfers, and gifts from donor-advised funds.

If you are age 70.5 or older, you can also make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), also known as an IRA Charitable Rollover. These gifts maximize your charitable impact while maximizing tax savings. While you are eligible to make this gift starting at 70.5, when you turn 72 you must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA, and a QCD for The Foundling will count towards that RMD.
