Direct a Gift from your Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you have a donor advised fund with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to this nonprofit directly from your DAF. Please use the tool on the sidebar to conveniently donate today.

Donate your IRA rollover

Another way to support the JFK Library is through an IRA charitable rollover. For individuals aged 70½ and older can make direct transfers totaling up to $100,000 per year to 501(c)3 non-profit organizations, without having to count the transfers as income for federal income tax purposes. This applies to your mandatory minimum IRA distributions, as well as any other gift from your IRA to the JFK Library Foundation. Please note our Tax Identification #04-6113130.
