Naming the Alpha-1 Foundation as the beneficiary of your qualified retirement plan (including an IRA, Keogh, 401(K), 403(B), or defined benefit plan) can help you save on taxes while advancing research into a cure for Alpha-1.
For individuals 70½ or older with a traditional IRA, Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs), also known as IRA Charitable Rollovers, are a savvy way to use your IRA to maximize your charitable impact.
Appreciated Stocks & Securities
Many donors prefer to make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or exchange traded funds. When you donate stocks and securities, you avoid paying capital gains tax, maximizing the impact of your money to support the fight for a cure for Alpha-1.
