Other Ways to Give - Securities

A cash gift is not the only way to support NPF.

There are many other opportunities, including transferring stock or making a contribution from your IRA.

Support NPF Your Way

Gifts of Securities

To make a stock gift to NPF, please fill out the form below or contact development@psoriasis.org for instructions and account information.

Gift of Stock

IRA Charitable Rollovers

Are you over the age of 70 ½? Do you have an IRA?

If you answered “Yes” to both questions, you can make a Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD) up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to the National Psoriasis Foundation! A QCD can help you reach your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) without having to pay income taxes on the amount of your donation. You save on your taxes and help those affected by psoriatic disease.

Making a gift from your IRA is simple. Just contact your plan administrator to request your RMD and elect a QCD naming the National Psoriasis Foundation. Here is a sample letter for your use, to customize with your information, as needed.

Important QCD Guidelines

Retirement Plan

The gift must be made from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). No other retirement plans (such as 401k, 403b, or SEP accounts) qualify.


Legislation requires you to reach age 70½ by the date you make the gift.

Source of Funds

It is important that your gift is made directly from your IRA by your IRA administrator. Funds that are withdrawn by the account holder and then contributed do not qualify.

Direct Payments

Your gift must come to the National Psoriasis Foundation outright. It cannot be used to establish a life-income arrangement or support a donor-advised fund.

Annual Limits

Total annual QCDs from all IRAs cannot exceed $100,000 for an individual. Spouses can each make up to $100,000 of QCDs if they are both age 70½ or older.

Income Tax

Although the distribution will be free from income tax, it will not generate an income tax charitable deduction.


We must receive your gift by Dec. 31 for your donation to qualify this year.

Why Consider This Gift?

  • Put your philanthropic dollars at work today, allowing you to see the difference your donation is making.
  • You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
  • If you have not yet taken your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
