How an IRA charitable distribution works

  1. Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA account.

    Here is the information you will need to provide to your IRA custodian:

    Make checks payable to:
    Alliance Defending Freedom
    Attn: Gift Processing
    15100 N. 90th St.
    Scottsdale, AZ 85260
    FED TAX ID#: 54-1660459

    Direct payments (ACH transfer):
    Alliance Defending Freedom
    Attn: Gift Processing
    Bank Name: Wells Fargo Bank
    Account Number: 0411398696
    ABA Routing Number: 121000248

  2. Please ask your IRA custodian to include your name with the distribution.
  3. Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to our organization to help continue our important work.
  4. Please note that IRA charitable distributions do not qualify for a charitable deduction.
  5. If you chose to make an IRA charitable distribution, please contact us (or use the "Notify" option in the "Make a Gift From My IRA" sidebar tool) to notify us that a distribution check or transfer is being sent—along with your name, IRA custodian's name, and the date and amount.
  6. You can expect to receive an acknowledgment letter around 7-10 business days after we process your gift. If you do not receive your acknowledgment letter, please contact us to make sure your gift was properly assigned.

Gifts from your IRA

If you are 70½ or older, you can use your IRA to fulfill your charitable goals. You can use the "Make a Gift From My IRA" tool to contact your IRA custodian and make a qualified charitable distribution. Also, use the "Notify" option in the sidebar tool to let us know about your gift. We will acknowledge your generous gifts as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD), which may satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD), if applicable.

IRA Rollover to Gift Annuity

The Secure 2.0 Act provides a once-in-a-lifetime easy way to do so using a tax-free distribution from your IRA! A charitable gift annuity (CGA) is a contract between you and our organization—in exchange for your charitable gift, we agree to pay you a fixed income for your lifetime. Once you contribute cash from your IRA, the CGA begins to make monthly or quarterly payments to you for your lifetime. Under the act's provisions, you must be 70½ or older to take advantage of this opportunity.
