When you make a grant distribution via your donor advised fund, please check the privacy instructions with your fund administrator to ensure they include both your name and your personal address so we can timely acknowledge your gift. If you do not hear from us, it is likely your Donor Advised Fund didn't include your identifying information.

IRA Charitable Rollover

The IRA Charitable Rollover was made permanent for 2015 and beyond through a provision of the "Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015".
This allows people age 70 1/2 or older to make direct transfers up to $100,000 per year to charitable organizations from their Individual Retirement Accounts, without the withdrawal being treated as taxable income.
Contact the financial institution that holds your IRA about how to instruct them to make a direct charitable transfer. You may instruct them to make a distribution to ACLU Foundation of Iowa, 505 5th Avenue, Ste 808, Des Moines, IA 50309, Tax ID# 42-1002093.
Contributions to the ACLU Foundation of Iowa, a 501(c)(3) organization, are tax-deductible to the extent of the current tax code.
