Other Ways to Give

We offer a variety of ways to invest in lasting change, some with little or no current cost to you.

Donate Stock

A gift of appreciated stock or other assets creates meaningful impact throughout North Texas, while also offering potential tax benefits. By donating assets, you may be able to increase your tax deduction and your gift while avoiding capital gains taxes.

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.
