IRA Donations

Make the most of your IRA

If you are 70 ½ years old or older, you can help youth with behavioral health issues get the help they need to recover by making a tax-free gift directly from your IRA.

You can donate up to $100,000 each year without incurring income tax on your withdrawal.

WITH YOUR GIFT YOU CAN

  • Satisfy your IRA required annual minimum distribution.
  • Make annual transfers up to $100,000 each year.
  • Pay no federal tax on the transfer and avoid additional taxable income.
  • Make an immediate impact on YES’ ability to provide critical services beyond what public funding makes possible.

HOW TO MAKE A DONATION USING IRA

Contact your IRA account manager and follow their procedures to request a “Qualified Charitable Distribution.” The check must be accompanied by your name and address information in order for you to receive a written acknowledgment from us.

Please provide the recipient information below to your account manager, along with our Tax ID# 91-0849093. Please direct your check, drawn on your IRA account, and made payable to the Youth Eastside Services to:

Youth Eastside Services
