If you are at least 70½ years old, you can use your IRA to support ICJS in a win-win strategy: you can reduce your taxable income and ICJS can gain your support. Called “Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD),” these contributions must be requested by you, but paid directly by your IRA fund administrator to ICJS.
Ask your IRA fund administrator for more information.
Donating securities, including mutual funds, may be a tax-advantaged option for you. Your broker or mutual fund plan administrator will transfer the securities directly to ICJS’ brokerage account, if directed by you. First, contact Laura Urban at firstname.lastname@example.org or (410) 494-7161, ext. 2004 to get the ICJS account information. Also, you will need to tell us when you make the transfer so we can know who the gift is from!
It is simple to include your favorite nonprofits (including ICJS!) as one of your beneficiaries in your will. Gifts can be a percentage of the estate or a specific dollar amount.
For 34 years, Kathryn Kelley Hoskins (1961-2021) worked to build the interreligious society, first as an ICJS founder who wrote the first bylaws, followed by her continual service as a Trustee until her death. Today, ICJS is proud to honor her with a memorial fund to support the work of building the interreligious society where dialogue replaces division, friendship overcomes fear, and education eradicates ignorance.
