Invest in NH Audubon for Today
Working together for a healthier environment through our core programs: CONSERVATION, EDUCATION, SANCTUARIES and ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY – a critical investment in conservation action.
“The Annual Fund is a vital source of support for all our programs – conservation biology, education, land protection, and environmental policy.” – Paul Nickerson, Chair of the Board of Trustees
This investment in NH Audubon is typically unrestricted, meaning it can be put to work for any of our programs and organizational needs. The Annual Fund is key to creating annual impact to protect our New Hampshire way of life … our birds, our wildlife, our unique landscapes, our environment, our planet. Gifts are welcome any time during the year.
Matching gift opportunities for Annual Fund contributions
Many companies will match their employees’ contributions to nonprofit organizations, doubling or even tripling a contribution! Check with your Human Resources Department to see if your employer offers this opportunity to maximize your gift.
Gift opportunities through IRAs
If you have savings in an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) that you don’t anticipate needing, you can support NH Audubon this year and reduce your tax liability. The Tax Relief Act of 2010 renewed a special charitable giving provision that allows individuals to make tax-free charitable distributions of up to $100,000 from traditional or Roth IRAs. This provision applies to:
- People who are at least 70½ years old
- Distributions made before December 31, 2011, when the provision is set to expire.
Required distributions from traditional IRAs are taxable. If you have saved tax-deferred income in an IRA and are currently required to take distributions from it, any amount you donate to NH Audubon can count towards your annual distribution and is tax free. IRA distributions can be an easy, tax-free way to support our work for New Hampshire’s natural environment and wildlife.
Honoraria and Memorials
A gift to NH Audubon in the name of someone with an abiding interest in wildlife, our environment, or environmental education makes an appropriate acknowledgement of achievement or remembrance.
