Plus check out three other great ways to give back to the Trail that connects us all:
Through Your IRA
If you have an IRA and are 70.5 years or older, you may be eligible to donate up to $100,000 tax-free, directly from your IRA to a qualified charity like the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance!
This direct transfer from your IRA to a qualified charitable organization will be allocated toward satisfying your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is excluded from your taxable income and is a direct benefit to the charity of your choice. The funds are transferred directly to the organization from your IRA account.
To learn more and to make an IRA rollover gift, contact your IRA administrator and request a direct distribution to the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance.
With a Stock Donation
Additional tax benefits are available by donating long-term appreciated stock. You can donate long-term appreciated securities, like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance through our investment account. Doing so will result in a larger donation to us while eliminating your related capital gains tax.
Consider donating your stock through our 911 Fidelity Investment Account (account #Z73-070858; DTC: 0226). Contact your financial advisor to get started.
When You Buy on Amazon
Perhaps the easiest way to give back to the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance is when you shop on Amazon.
Visit smile.amazon.com and select the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance as your charity. When you purchase items through Amazon Smile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase back to the Trail, which can really add up!
we thank you for your generous support!
