- Provide your broker with delivery instructions to WAMC located here.
Contribute your IRA Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)
- Directing your RMD to WAMC may provide you with tax benefits.
- If you are 72 years old or above with an employer-sponsored retirement plan, contact your financial professional for information on donating all or a portion to WAMC, a qualified charitable distribution.
- Include WAMC’s Employer Identification Number: 22-2400-593.
- Recommend a grant to WAMC from your donor-advised fund (DAF).
- Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle due to their tax advantages and ease of giving to any IRS-qualified charity.
- Speak with your financial professional for more information.
- Ask your employer if they have a charitable contribution match program.
- A matching gift could double your impact on the station’s work.
Donate Your Vehicle
- Your car has been good to you, so why not let it do more and benefit WAMC?
- Our partner, Charitable Adult Rides & Services (CARS), will tow it away, sell it, and give WAMC the proceeds…and you get the tax breaks.
Tribute or Memorial Gift
- A gift in honor of a friend or loved one is a meaningful tribute.
- At your request, we can send a notice of the gift to them or, if given in their memory, we can notify their family.
