Can I use my retirement plan/IRA to benefit the Conservation Lands Foundation?

Yes, you can leave CLF as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or part of an IRA. This type of gift is also easy to make and can maximize benefits to you and our work. To make this gift, simply notify your plan’s administrator of your wish to change the beneficiary. A change of beneficiary form will be required. CLF can be a full or partial beneficiary of your plan.

A Special Opportunity for Those 70½ Years Old and Older: You can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as CLF without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short. In 2023 new laws include retirement changes, known collectively as “Secure 2.0,” that may even make it easier for you to make a difference at organizations you care about.
