Donate by Check

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 to: Women’s Sports Foundation Attn.: Cheryl Bliss, Development 247 West 30th Street, 5th Floor New York, NY 10001 If you would like to make a gift by wire transfer, please email Cheryl Bliss or call her at 646.813.7240.

Donor Advised Funds

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:

  1. Contact your financial advisor, or specific donor advised fund representative for specific advice about how to establish a DAF.
  2. Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
  3. Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free).
  4. Recommend grants to qualified public charities of your choice.

Donor-advised funds provide a number of benefits that direct donations to a charity may not, including:

  • Simplicity – The DAF sponsor handles all record keeping, disbursements, and tax receipts.
  • Flexibility – Timing of your tax deduction can be separate from your charitable decision-making.
  • Tax-efficiency – Contributions are tax-deductible and any investment growth in the DAF is tax-free. It is also easy to donate long-term appreciated securities, eliminating capital gains taxes and allowing you to support multiple charities from one block of stock.
  • Family legacy – A DAF is a powerful way to build or continue a tradition of family philanthropy.
If you have any questions about donating from your DAF, please email Cheryl Bliss or call her at 646.813.7240

Gifts of Stock

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.

If you would like to make a gift of stock or other securities, please email Cheryl Bliss or call her at 646.813.7240.

IRA Rollover

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.
