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

Your financial advisor can assist you in making a stock gift. Please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to donate. OCRA will then provide the instructions for electronic transfer and you will receive a tax letter for the full market value of the stock.

IRA Distributions

To make a gift from your IRA, contact your IRA administrator and instruct them to make a distribution directly to OCRA, PO Box 32141 New York, NY 10087-2141 (Tax ID 13-3806788). Please ask your administrator to include your name and address when they transfer the funds so we can provide you with an acknowledgement for your records.

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.

Car Donations

Donate your car and 80% of the sale will support OCRA. Vehicles for Charity offers free pick-up of used cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, recreational vehicles, campers, and more. Donors will be provided with a tax-deductible receipt. For more information and to schedule a donation, call 1-866-628-2277 or complete their simple online form.

Shop Online

Round Up Your Purchases

Support OCRA by rounding up the spare change on your purchases to the nearest dollar, with Cheerful Giving. You’ll receive monthly statements and tax deductible receipts to keep track of your contributions, can set a monthly limit on your donations, and can pause donations at any time.
