Make a Qualified Charitable Distribution from Your IRA
If you are 70.5 years or older, a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA allows you to contribute up to $100,000 (for individuals) or $200,000 (for married couples) to a charitable organization without paying income tax.
Give through a Donor Advised Fund
Through a Donor Advised Fund (DAF), you can recommend a one-time grant or initiate an automatic monthly or quarterly gift, which is one of the easiest ways to show your commitment all year long.
Make a Planned Gift
Through a will or trust, you can make a planned gift to support United Way’s future work in education, income and health. All planned gifts are designated to the United Way of Metropolitan Endowment, so your gift becomes a permanent legacy.
