Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows you to make tax-deductible donations of cash, publicly-traded stock, and in some cases, certain liquid assets to a public charity. Click the link below to give through your Fidelity, Schwab, or BNY Mellon donor-advised fund.

IRAs

For those aged 70½ or older, you can make tax-favored charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRA accounts. A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from traditional or Roth IRAs to one or more qualified charities, such as spcaLA, free from federal income tax each year. There may also be state income tax savings. Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift. To make such gifts, it is important to not withdraw funds prior to a gift, but have the gift amount distributed directly from an IRA to one or more qualified charities. For those with check-writing privileges on their accounts, drawing a check may be the most efficient way to make gifts directly from one’s IRA. Check with your IRA administrator or your tax advisor for more information.

Vehicle Donations

spcaLA works with Car Donating Is Easy (CARS) to accommodate donations of used vehicles. spcaLA receives 80% of the proceeds of the sale of your vehicle, and CARS handles everything! To get started, call (877)697-PETS (7387) or donate online.
