Living Generously

Living Generously 150 150 Kim Bowman

With school back in session, calendars are filling with autumn activities, sports events, social gatherings and charity galas (ours is October 14 – join us!). The pace of life is speeding up, and it seems impossible to fit everything in.

As autumn unfolds, we hope you’ll note moments when your heart is stirred to help others through personal generosity. Way to Grow’s work continues every day to serve children and families to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to succeed in school and life. What could be more important than children reaching their potential in life by getting the best possible start? Your yearly gift — or automatic monthly gift – will help ensure Way to Grow’s work is sustained and strengthened. Please give as generously as you can here.

If you are age 70-1/2 in 2022, you may send Way to Grow a gift directly from your IRA, which may also fulfill your Required Minimum Distribution ((if you are 72 or older in 2022). This is a beautiful method of giving that leverages pre-tax dollars to support qualified charities, so it costs you less than cash you’ve already been taxed on. It also taps into dollars already saved up and puts those funds to work now in support of neighbors in need. Individuals can gift up to $100,000 out of their IRAs each year, and these funds bypass the Federal Tax Return, so they are neither taxed as income, nor deducted as a gift.

Way to Grow would be pleased to receive your IRA gift or assist you with other tax-wise ways of giving. Please call us at (612) 874-4740 or check in with your tax advisor. Way to Grow cherishes gifts of all types and sizes. With your great support, we can reach even more families and children whose futures will be brighter because of your generosity. Thank you!
