Stocks & Other Gifts

There are a number of additional ways to support OCRA and maximize the impact of your gift, as well as your tax benefits.

Gifts of Stock

Many donors prefer to make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or exchange traded funds because it can have a large impact on our mission, while maximizing potential tax benefits. Donate your appreciated assets, while saving on taxes. You or your financial advisor can make a stock gift online in less than 5 minutes or access our transfer information.

IRA Distributions

Are you 70.5 or older? If so, you are eligible to make a gift from your IRA that benefits you and helps Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance. For individuals 72 and older who need to fulfill a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) this year — an IRA gift can help meet this requirement and help you avoid a hefty tax penalty at the same time. Donate from your IRA without dipping into your taxable income. 

Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving vehicle administered by a qualified public charity. Think of it like a philanthropic savings account. After you establish a DAF, you can make contributions to the fund as often as you wish and receive an immediate charitable deduction. When you are ready, you can then recommend a grant to OCRA.
