An outright gift of a check is the simplest method of giving and may be declared as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return for the year you make the gift. For a gift of a check, you may deduct an amount equal to 50% of your adjusted gross income. Any excess balance may be deducted over the next five years.
If you would like to make a gift via check, please send your donation made out to “Women’s Sports Foundation” to:
Women’s Sports Foundation
Attn.: Development Dept
247 West 30th Street, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10001
A Donor Advised Fund is an account that may be established directly with a sponsoring non-profit organization, community foundation, or financial institution. Contributions into the fund are tax deductible. You can recommend how much (and how often) you want to distribute money from that fund to WSF or other charities.
WSF is grateful for all donations from donor advised funds and will work with you to make the giving process simple and efficient.
How It works:
Donor-advised funds provide a number of benefits that direct donations to a charity may not, including:
Your personal donation to the Women’s Sports Foundation can be taken a step further by exploring matching gift options from your employer! WSF has a free and easy tool for you to use to match your online and offline gifts. Please click this link to search for your company and complete the form/view your employer’s portal to have your gift matched.
Donating securities held long term (more than one year) continues to be an effective way to give. You may donate publicly traded securities to WSF and avoid capital gains taxes. You may save substantially more in taxes by giving securities as opposed to cash. If you have owned the securities for more than one year, you may qualify for a charitable income tax deduction equal to the value of the securities on the date they are given. Gifts of appreciated securities are deductible for an amount equal to 30% of your adjusted gross income in the year you make the gift. Any excess balance may be deducted over the next five years.

You may make an IRA Rollover gift for immediate impact. Here is how it works:
Individuals who are 70½ or older may transfer up to $100,000 a year directly from their traditional or Roth IRA to a qualified charity, such as WSF. The amount of the transfer will not be included in your taxable income, and the transferred amount can count toward your required minimum distribution. (The gift cannot, however, be claimed as an income tax deduction.) It’s easy to make an IRA rollover gift!
The process for making a gift from your IRA is straightforward; however, it is important to exercise care to ensure that your transaction is completed correctly. For example, the funds must be transferred directly from your IRA administrator to WSF to avoid taxation.
To accomplish your rollover gift seamlessly, please email Cheryl Bliss or call her at 646.813.7240.
Cryptocurrency donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to give to charity. Cryptocurrency donations are tax-deductible as property, per guidance from the IRS, see more. By making a charitable gift, you may also be eligible to significantly reduce what you would otherwise owe in capital gains taxes.
As with any tax-related questions, be sure to consult with a qualified, professional tax advisor. Get more information about lowering your crypto taxes.
