Use Your IRA to Support Nature
If you are 70½ or older, you can make a tax-free distribution from your traditional or Roth IRA to The Nature Conservancy. It's an efficient way to support the causes that matter to you most.
Making Your Gift
Contact your IRA custodian and ask them to send the check for a "qualified charitable distribution" to The Nature Conservancy to the attention of the Treasury IRA at the following address:
The Nature Conservancy, attn: Treasury IRA
4245 North Fairfax Drive Ste. 100
Arlington, VA 22203
Please request that your IRA custodian reference your name and address if possible. If you have questions about a gift from your IRA that has already been made, please contact our Member Care team at (800) 628-6860 firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are still working and contributing to a retirement account, this gift could impact your taxable income. Please consult a qualified advisor before making a gift. If you’re under the age of 70½, you can use your IRA to support TNC’s work by making a withdrawal and donating the proceeds after taxes OR by designating TNC as a beneficiary of your retirement plan.
Meet Chris and Kate Mathews
Chris and Kate Mathews were required to take minimum distributions from their IRAs—so they used that income to make a tax-free gift to TNC.
