Individuals should consult with a personal tax advisor or financial planner to determine which charitable giving strategy – bequests, stock transfers, annuities, royalties, etc. – is best.
If your employer has a matching gift program, obtain the proper forms from their personnel office.
A donor-advised fund (DAF) allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive immediate tax benefit and recommend distribution from the fund over time. Donors then recommend a grant to the NREF when ready.
Memorials and Tributes
The NREF has partnered with Legacy.com to assist individuals and families in directing memorial donations. To honor a loved one, consult with a funeral director or include the NREF as the designated charity in an obituary.
