More Ways to Give

Your generous support is vital to the Arms Control Association’s steadfast and effective work 
to eliminate the threats posed by the world’s most dangerous weapons.

The Arms Control Association is a U.S.-based, independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit 
organization, Federal EIN 23-7124588. Gifts made in the United States are tax deductible to the 
fullest extent allowed by the law.

You can make a significant impact with a gift that costs nothing in your lifetime through a 
charitable bequest. Membership in the ACA's Legacy Society is open to all who notify the ACA 
in writing that they have taken steps to provide a future planned gift for the ACA through their 
estate plans. 
Bequests may include cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, collectibles, or retirement-plan assets. 
Other assets may also be willed to the ACA. You can give a specific dollar amount or a 
percentage of your estate. You can even name the ACA as a residual beneficiary. This means 
that ACA will receive the remainder of your estate after all other bequests and taxes have been 
satisfied. Gifts of any size are welcome and appreciated.

A donor-advised fund is a little like a personal charitable savings account. You create an account 
and make a contribution of cash, stock, or other assets like real estate or artwork and can take an 
immediate tax deduction for the gift. Community foundations often serve as sponsoring 
organizations and so do nonprofit arms of financial-services firms. Once a fund is established, 
you instruct the sponsoring organization which nonprofits you would like to donate to from your 

If you are 70½ or older and have an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) you may want to 
consider making a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA directly to the 
Arms Control Association.

(Please note: As of January 2020, the age at which you are required to take a distribution from 
your IRA has increased from 70½ to 72, although you are still able to make a tax-free transfer 
beginning at age 70½). Please consult your tax advisor to determine if this type of gift is right 
for you.

An outright gift of stock can benefit both you and the ACA. A gift of long-term appreciated 
securities, either publicly traded or from a closely held company, may provide you with greater 
tax advantages than a gift of cash. ACA can put you in contact with our financial advisors at 
Morgan Stanley with stock transfer instructions.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made 
by their employees. When you make a matching gift, you can double or triple the impact of your 
contribution. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Ask your human 
resources department coordinator for more information.
