DONATE YOUR TIME
Your volunteer time and energy is priceless. See our Volunteer link.
DONATE THROUGH YOUR INDIVIDUAL RETIREMENT ACCOUNT (IRA)
Do you love helping children through KIDS RANCH programs? Are you at least 70-1/2 years old? Do you have an IRA?
If you answered "yes" to these questions, you can take advantage of a win-win opportunity to help kids and also receive a tax benefit. Recent tax law provides for you to retain the ability to make qualified charitable contributions from your IRA that are not subject to federal income tax, if you are 70-1/2 years of age or older. You can choose to direct an amount up to $100,000 per year to KIDS RANCH.Doing so lowers your taxable income, thus saving on your overall tax burden. This is a great option for managing the tax effects from Required Minimum Distributions. Please speak with your tax advisor or your IRA plan administrator to determine what is best for you.
In order to qualify, distributions must be sent directly to KIDS RANCH, Federal Tax ID #39-1944952 at PO Box 219, Baraboo, WI 53913. For more information, contact Andy Hager at 608/356-6675. Thank you, for your consideration!
From time to time, we have special needs for equipment and supplies. We will post a list here, as needed, and ask that you contact our executive director at 608/393-1037 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to contribute.
