Donor Advised Funds (DAF)

A donor-advised fund (DAF) provides you with a centralized charitable giving vehicle. DAFs allow individuals, families, and corporations to make irrevocable charitable gifts to nonprofits like American Society for Nutrition Foundation.

You could take an immediate tax deduction upon setting up your DAF with your local community foundation or financial institution, and that institution will make the gifts you designate. The American Society for Nutrition Foundation is grateful for all donations from donor-advised funds, and we will work with you to make the giving process simple and efficient.

To give to the American Society for Nutrition Foundation through your donor-advised fund, please provide your fund manager with the following:

Our legal name is: American Society for Nutrition Foundation Inc.
Our tax identification (EIN) number is: 45-2473558.

Special Tax-Free IRA Gifts

Those aged 70½ or older may wish to take advantage of an additional tax benefit by choosing to make their gifts using funds from a traditional or Roth IRA.

It may be possible to make charitable gifts directly from IRAs to qualified charities annually in a total amount up to $100,000 free from federal income taxation. The income tax laws of most states allow tax-free treatment as well. Check with your tax advisor.

This provision applies only to IRAs and not to 401(k)s, 403(b)s and other tax-favored retirement plans. Gifts must be made directly to the American Society for Nutrition Foundation and may not be made to donor advised funds, private foundations or supporting organizations or to fund trusts and similar life income gift arrangements.


Qualified Charitable Distributions (Also referred to as Charitable IRA Rollover Gifts)

A gift of a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) can benefit donors aged 70½ and up!*

The Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) may be an excellent way to show your support for the American Society for Nutrition Foundation and receive tax benefits in return. As you plan your required minimum distributions (RMD), consider using your IRA account to make the most of your charitable giving.

For more information, please contact us.
Please mail QCD checks to:
American Society for Nutrition Foundation Inc.
9211 Corporate Blvd., Suite 300
Rockville, MD 20850

Please note: We will need your name and address to accompany the check in order to correctly credit and acknowledge your gift.
