IRA Charitable Rollover

Are you 70-½ or older? Did you know that you can use funds from your IRA each year to support nonprofits and pay no income tax on the amount – up to $100,000? 

This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short. 

Talk to your tax advisor about using this option to support The Arc SF. 

Donate Stock

Gifts of appreciated stock may allow you to avoid a capital gains tax plus receive a charitable income tax deduction. Use the Stock Calculator to see the actual cost of your gift after-tax benefits.

To make a gift of stock, download and follow the Stock Transfer Form below instructions. Please email a copy of the completed form to Esther Landau, Senior Director of Advancement, The Arc San Francisco, at
