Give through your IRA

Donating to North Cascades Institute directly from your Individual Retirement Account is an easy and efficient way to make a big impact. If you are 70½ of age or older you can make a transfer directly from your IRA to the Institute without realizing any taxable income. If you are 72 or older, this charitable transfer can also satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).

You may make a charitable rollover gift by instructing your plan administrator to directly transfer a gift to North Cascades Institute. Because your gift may be received without any name or contact information associated with it, please let us know you have made a gift by sending an email to

Please consult your financial advisor for guidance about how making an IRA charitable rollover gift affects your specific situation.
