Charitable Giving Options

Stocks & Securities

Stocks and securities may be donated or transferred directly to Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge. You may be able to reduce or eliminate capital gains and estate taxation through this gift as well. Your broker, financial advisor, or estate planner can provide information on potential tax and income benefits from this giving option.

Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD)

A Qualified Charitable Distribution allows you to leverage your retirement savings to support our vital work, offering several distinct benefits:

  1. Tax Advantages: By making a QCD, you can satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) without incurring taxable income. This can result in significant tax savings, especially if you’re in a higher tax bracket.
  2. Supporting Conservation: Your QCD will directly contribute to our efforts in wildlife rehabilitation, habitat preservation, and educational programs. It ensures that we can continue to protect the wildlife that call Cedar Run home.
  3. Immediate Impact: Unlike some charitable gifts that may take time to have an effect, a QCD provides immediate resources to address our most pressing needs. Your support will help us care for injured wildlife, educate future generations, and maintain our pristine natural habitats.
  4. Legacy of Giving: Your generosity through a QCD sets an inspiring example for others who may wish to support causes close to their hearts during their retirement years. Your legacy of giving will inspire future generations to continue our mission.
  5. Personal Satisfaction: Knowing that you’ve played a significant role in preserving our environment and enriching our community can be immensely satisfying. Your QCD is a tangible expression of your commitment to a more sustainable future.
