Special Gifts Go A Long Way in Saving Lives!

The Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Education Fund is a tax-exempt organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Education Fund has remained steadfast in its life-saving mission, supported by people like you. Thank you! Please consider other ways of giving to this tax deductible charity:

1. If your employer has a “matching gift” program that matches employee charitable donations dollar-for-dollar, you can double your gift. Speak to your company’s Human Resources office for more information.

2. Name the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Education Fund as the beneficiary on a life insurance policy or on your will.

3. You may obtain a significant tax advantage and reduce your capital gains taxes by donating noncash gifts of appreciated securities such as stocks and bonds. This could provide a tax deduction for the market value of stocks owned more than a year. It is an excellent way to provide a larger gift than you thought possible. Sorry, no cars.

4. Permanent IRA tax-free charitable distributions became law in 2015.  Everyone age 70 1/2 or older can direct charitable gifts totaling up to $100,000 per year from their IRA account without first incurring federal income tax on the withdrawal.  Although these distributions will be free from income tax, they will not generate an income tax charitable deduction. This IRA charitable rollover provides donors with an excellent opportunity to make a gift while they are still living from an asset that would be subject to multiple levels of taxation if it remained in your taxable estate.

Transfers must be made directly from a traditional IRA account by the IRA Administrator.  The IRA Administrator should make the check payable to the PA Pro-Life Federation Education Fund (Fed ID #25-6255722), and mail it directly to:  PA Pro-Life Federation Education Fund, 4800 Jonestown Rd, Suite 102, Harrisburg, PA17109-1741.

If the owner of the IRA personally withdraws the funds and then contributes them, they will NOT qualify for the tax-free distribution. Gifts from 401k, 403b, SEP and other plans also do NOT qualify.

Donors will experience significant tax savings and help save innocent lives at the same time!  If you are 70 ½ years old, then Contact your IRA Administrator now and authorize a gift to the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Education Fund today.
