One-Time Gift

Recurring Gift

Make a tax-deductible gift to ensure a flourishing future for young people with a Donor-Advised Fund. Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) are a convenient way to simplify your charitable giving to Springtide. 

DAFs are the fastest-growing giving method and a tax-efficient way to manage your charitable donations. They allow donors to make a contribution and receive an immediate tax deduction. 

Your thoughtful gift allows Springtide to continue to research, give voice to, and advocate for the needs of young people today and for future generations.  

IRA Gifts / Qualified Charitable Distributions / Required Minimum Distributions  

If you are age 72 or older and own a traditional IRA, you may be legally required to take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) each year. Moreover, since your funds have accumulated in a traditional IRA pretax, the withdrawal of your RMD each year may be subject to income tax. 

You may elect to donate these funds to Springtide and invest in the long-term future of current and emerging generations of young people. By making a direct transfer of all or a portion of your RMD, you may be able to avoid the income tax you would otherwise be subject to (so long as you did not contribute to your IRA that year). This is known as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) and you are allowed to transfer up to $100,000 each year. 

In order to quickly and efficiently match your IRA distribution gift to your donor record (and promptly provide you the receipt you will need for your taxes), it is helpful if you proactively inform us a check is coming, the amount of the check, and the financial institution. 

Donors aged 70½ and older who are still contributing funds to their IRA may not be able to donate their QCD free of taxes. Donors are encouraged to seek financial and tax advice from a qualified professional when making gifts. 

For more information, contact giving@springtideresearch.org.  

A gift of stock to Springtide will help support our far-reaching research and projects, and minimize your tax burden at the same time. To donate securities held by your broker, please contact us to discuss this generous option, giving@springtideresearch.org.  

  1. Transfer the securities to the Springtide Research Institute, c/o Lasallian Educational and Research Initiatives.  

Many employers match charitable contributions made by their employees. Check with your personnel or human resources office about your organization’s program. If your employer does not have a matching-gift program, Springtide can help you encourage them to start one. For more information, contact giving@springtideresearch.org.  

With a national and international scope, Springtide is fortunate to work with a diverse range of grantmakers, from major national foundations as well as small family foundations seeking to address issues on a national or global scale to strive to improve the quality of life for young people in their own communities or areas of interest.  

To discuss how your foundation can partner with Springtide, contact John Vitek, President & CEO, Director, at giving@springtideresearch.org.
