Many community-minded companies match their employees’ donations to organizations like the National WWI Museum and Memorial. While most programs match contributions dollar for dollar, some will even double or triple the amount of the gift. Some companies that have a matching gifts program are Sprint, General Electric, State Street and ExxonMobil, but there are many more. Check with your employer’s website or Human Resources Department to get started.

IRA Charitable Rollover

With recent changes to the tax law, the IRA Charitable Rollover provision allows individuals who have reached age 70 ½ to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA) without treating the distribution as taxable income. Please contact your tax advisor if you would like to take advantage of this provision. The National WWI Museum and Memorial is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. (EIN: 43-6052673)
