Your Generous Contribution and Tax Savings,
Your Impact for the Future of LifeCare Alliance!
When you make a contribution to LifeCare Alliance directly from your IRA, you help us meet the growing need for basic needs in our community, while making a tax-efficient gift. The IRA Rollover Law makes it possible for you to make a distribution to LifeCare Alliance from your IRA without paying income taxes on the contribution. In addition, gifts to our Legacy Endowment Campaign can be doubled, as a generous anonymous donor is matching gifts to the endowment up to $5 million!

 Helpful Tips:
  • You must be at least 70 ½ years old.
  • You must decline goods or services.
  • Rollover may not exceed $100,000.
To make a gift:
  • Send a letter to your IRA administrator requesting a direct charitable distribution to LifeCare Alliance in the amount you wish to donate.
  • Include our Tax ID number: 31-4379494.

If you would like to connect with a local professional adviser, please visit our resource directory online . While LifeCare Alliance does not endorse advisers, the members of our Legacy Endowment Advisory Council are well-informed about LifeCare Alliance programs and services, as well as the $5M match opportunity.
Disclaimer: Donors are advised to seek qualified legal and tax advice before making any gift that has tax implications. The information contained herein does not constitute legal, tax, or other professional advice and should not be relied upon as such.

There may still be ways to maximize both impact and possible tax benefits this year. Take a look at some of the options below as you think about your annual gift.
  • Give a gift of appreciated stock.
  • Give a multi-year, bundled gift. This will be a great way to maximize tax benefits in 2019, while ensuring your impact for several years.

Your Gift in Action:
  • $2,500 delivers meals & in-home services to a homebound neighbor for 1 year.
  • $2,000 sends a child with diabetes to our residential Camp Hamwi.
  • $1,000 pays for 10 mammograms for uninsured or under-insured clients.
  • $500 provides fifty transportation trips for clients' clinical visits.
  • $100 feeds a low-income family battling active cancer through our basic needs pantry for 1 month.
