How do I donate through my IRA?

You can make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) to GlobalGiving from your IRA. It is free, quick, and easy to do through our partnership with FreeWill. You can also make requests directly through your IRA custodian or financial advisor. If you would like to make a qualified charitable distribution to GlobalGiving or one of our amazing partners, instruct your IRA custodian or financial advisor to include with the payment or donation letter:

  • Your name
  • Email address or physical mailing address
  • Details about your designation

With this information, we can ensure you get the proper documentation for your tax preparation. For more information about how QCDs work, please refer to IRS guidelines.
