IRA charitable rollover

You can transfer funds from your IRA directly to the PKD Foundation. This is an effective way to have an immediate impact and ensure our shared mission to find treatments and a cure is successful. Here’s how it works:

  • You must be 70 ½ or older.
  • An individual may transfer up to a total of $100,000 per year and a married couple may give up to $200,000.
  • Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to the PKD Foundation
  • Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to the PKD Foundation so it does not create taxable income for you and is not considered a charitable tax deduction.
  • If you are 72 and older, the transfer of funds counts toward your annual Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA.

You can learn more about IRA giving and how it benefits you.

Memorial or tribute gift

When you give a memorial or tribute gift for the PKD Foundation to honor someone special, you’re expressing your love, admiration, and gratitude in one of the most meaningful ways there is. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute, and drive support, education, and awareness for PKD patients, their families, and our communities. 

Gifts of securities
You can use stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have appreciated in value to support our shared vision. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
