Congress has made the direct charitable distribution of IRA funds a permanent provision, so many Bread for the World members are making this part of their annual giving plan. Individuals 70 ½ years or older may contribute up to $100,000 to qualified charities.
To take advantage of this provision, a check must be sent from the IRA directly to Bread for the World Institute. You do not declare this withdrawal as income on your tax return, nor does it qualify for a charitable tax deduction. Thus this type of gift may be helpful to non-itemizers. A qualified charitable distribution, though, can satisfy part or all of the required minimum withdrawal from an IRA.
Consider a gift to Bread for the World Institute through your donor-advised fund or family foundation.
You may also wish to name Bread for the World Institute an organizational beneficiary of your donor-advised fund.
Double or triple your gift to Bread for the World Institute. Many employers will match donations to charitable organizations like Bread for the World Institute.

Contact your employer’s human resources department to see if they have a matching gift program.
Stocks and securities can be transferred or given to Bread for the World Institute. Gifts of stock may provide a double tax benefit: an income-tax deduction for the property's full fair-market value and the stock's appreciation may help you avoid capital gains taxes. Gifts of stock can also be made to Bread for the World, but they are not tax-deductible.
If you wish to make contributions of stock, please contact Vince Mezzera at 800-822-7323, ext. 1128 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To ensure you receive credit for your gift of stock, please be sure to include information about the stock you are contributing, including your name and the number of shares. If your personal broker will be working directly with our broker, please give her or him special instructions to include your name in the transaction.
