Support the Mission
“If we don’t stand up for our children, then we don’t stand up for much.”
President and Founder, Children’s Defense Fund
Support The Mission
The AMERICA’S ANGEL Campaign holds no political, religious, or philosophical agenda. Rather, we have come together simply as mothers and fathers, as grandparents, as American citizens, with our commitment to establish this mission for the sake of our children and yours.
To create a foundational shift in what America values, and a nation worthy of our children, we must ALL stand together. We must ALL invest in the solution. Your donation, of any amount, builds momentum for the Campaign’s Mission and Objectives to become our Nation’s reality.
You may avoid income tax on the distribution. Typically, traditional IRAs are subject to standard income taxes upon withdrawal, and if they remain as part of an estate, they may be subject to estate taxes as well. Charitable rollovers do not generate taxable income and are not tax deductible as a charitable gift.
You can preserve your cash assets and fulfill IRA distribution requirements by giving a gift to The AMERICA’S ANGEL Campaign through an IRA rollover. Contributions may be counted toward your annual minimum required distribution.
Your spouse can also give $100,000 if 70½ or older.
To comply with the new law, the distribution from your IRA must be transferred directly from the plan administrator of your IRA to AMERICA’S ANGEL. You simply contact your plan administrator to request the transfer.
We also ask that you inform AMERICA’S ANGEL of your gift so that we may provide you with a letter acknowledging the amount of the distribution and the date it was received.
Pledges allow donors to make ongoing gifts over a period of months or years. Please contact your credit card company to set up payment schedules.
Many employers match their employees’ gifts to charitable institutions. Some companies will match the gifts of employee spouses and retired employees, as well. Ask the human resources or benefits office at your workplace for more information.
If you’re considering making AMERICA’S ANGEL part of your trust, bequest, or endowment, please contact your Financial Planner. A planned gift to AMERICA’S ANGEL creates your own legacy of support on behalf of America’s Children, Family, and Future. Planned giving also offers significant advantages, including tax breaks and a potential income increase.
Giving a gift in memory of a loved one or in honor of a birthday, anniversary, or special occasion is a special way to pay tribute to your loved one while supporting the mission of The AMERICA’S ANGEL Campaign. Your gift will be acknowledged by a personal note sent by AMERICA’S ANGEL to the honored person(s).
