Matching Gifts

The Matching Gifts program in many companies make it easy to possibly double your gift to Goodwill. Many companies will match qualified cash gifts you make.

Keep in mind that many employers also match the gifts of retirees and spouses. Your company may have a form that may need to be completed and returned. We are happy to complete it and send it in for you.

Tax-Free Transfers to Charity for IRA Owners 70½ or Older

IRA owners aged 70½ or older can directly transfer, tax-free, up to $100,000 per year to an eligible charity.

To qualify, the funds must be transferred directly by the IRA trustee to the eligible charity. Amounts transferred to a charity from an IRA are counted toward the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and not taxed as income. If you make the tax-free contribution, you cannot also deduct the charitable contribution on your income tax return.

Consult with your IRA trustee and your tax adviser in making this contribution.  It is also a good idea to contact the development office at Goodwill to let them know to expect this gift.

Please consider making an IRA tax-free charitable contribution to Goodwill Northern Michigan.
Employee Identification Number is 38-1976268
