Elk NetworkSmart Ideas for Year-End Giving – Donor-Advised Funds

Conservation | September 27, 2022

This holiday season, take a moment and consider the gifts you would like to give. You can give a gift that goes a long way toward ensuring the future of elk and elk country.

It’s fast, it’s popular, it’s easy and it’s like your own personal charitable savings account. Making a distribution from your Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a great way to support RMEF and its mission. Simply contact your sponsoring financial or community institution to recommend a grant to RMEF.

You may not take an income tax charitable deduction for this gift since you already received an income tax charitable deduction when you originally transferred the funds into the DAF at your sponsoring financial or community institution.

When establishing a DAF, you can also recommend that RMEF receive any remaining balance in the DAF upon your passing.

If interested, contact RMEF ([email protected] or 406-523-3456) and we will provide you or your broker the DTC and account numbers for your transfer. Brokers may not share their client’s information, and this allows us to track and recognize your donation.”

While these are suggestions or possibilities, it is important to note RMEF does not offer tax advice. And as always, RMEF recommends discussing options with your financial advisors before taking any action.

Turn your values into your legacy. Include RMEF as a beneficiary of your will, life insurance policy, retirement accounts, trust or annuity and be recognized in our esteemed Trails Society. Ensure generations will enjoy the wildlife and wild places that you treasure.
