We’re so grateful you have chosen to be part of our community and support our work through a financial contribution! Your gift allows us to provide up-to-date and science-based research, education, and federal advocacy for organic farmers.

The Organic Farming Research Foundation is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; EIN #77-0252545.

STOCKS & SECURITIES

Donating stock may allow you to contribute more than you normally would if you were giving cash due to the tax savings. Making a gift with appreciated securities will provide you a charitable deduction for the full value of the gift, whereas if you were to liquidate the assets and make a cash gift, you would be responsible for paying capital gains tax.

To make a gift of stock, simply complete this stock gift form, and provide the information to your broker. Please let us know about your gift so we can acknowledge you properly!

IRA ACCOUNT

Making a gift from your IRA is simple. If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make an outright gift directly to OFRF up to $100,000 annually from an IRA with an IRA charitable rollover gift, also known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Distributions can only be directed from a traditional IRA (not from a retirement plan such as a 401(k), 403(b), etc.) and possibly from a Roth IRA. 

Contact your IRA administrator to request a direct distribution to OFRF. They will likely provide a form for you to complete and may request OFRF’s EIN and mailing address (see above). Please ask your IRA administrator to ensure your name and contact information is associated with the transfer.

DONOR ADVISED FUNDS (DAFs)

OFRF welcomes gifts from donor-advised funds (DAFs). When making a contribution through your DAF, please include your name and contact information as part of your gift so we can properly acknowledge your support. Grants from DAFs cannot be used to satisfy a pre-existing pledge. Additionally, IRS rules prohibit the use of donor advised fund grants for any portion of a fundraising event ticket or table. Prior to making a grant recommendation, please ensure that your intentions meet any guidelines or requirements of your individual donor advised fund as suggested by your fund’s managers. If you have a DAF, you can log in using the link below to start on your grant recommendation.

ESTATE PLANNING

OFRF is deeply grateful for bequests and gifts from beneficiary designations that you have included in your estate plans as legacy gifts. Provide a gift of cash, securities, real estate, or other assets in your will, or name OFRF as the beneficiary of an IRA, donor advised fund or life insurance plan.

If you have provided for OFRF in your estate plans, please contact OFRF at give@ofrf.org. We would appreciate the opportunity to acknowledge your generosity and help us to envision how your gift will support our longer term efforts towards building sustainable agricultural systems and support organic farmers.

CAR DONATION

Do you have a car, farm equipment, or other vehicle that you no longer need? You can now donate that vehicle to OFRF and get a tax write off for your donation. We work with Careasy.org to make the process simple – including picking up the vehicle, handling the sale, and sending you the necessary IRS Form if required.

CORPORATE MATCHING

Does your company have a matching gift program? Many companies do! If they do, you can submit a matching gift request to your employer to double (sometimes triple!) the impact of your gift.  Your company will approve the request and then make a match donation to OFRF.

Make sure to pay attention to the deadlines for submitting your matching gift request as some companies don’t allow for gift matching after a certain amount of time after you gave your original gift. We recommend submitting your request right after you donate to OFRF!
