Donor-Advised Funds

Seattle Rep accepts gifts made via donor-advised funds (DAFs). Donor-advised funds will apply towards your annual giving level. Donor-advised funds offer donors tax advantages at the time of the original DAF contribution. Because of this, gifts made to Seattle Rep from a donor-advised fund are not eligible for donor benefits that have a fair market value associated with them. Please contact the organization holding your DAF for more information on making charitable contributions to Seattle Rep or if you have any questions about the tax deductibility of your gift.

IRA Charitable Rollover

Donating to Seattle Rep directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is an easy and efficient way to make a big impact for the mission-driven programs and productions that you love. If you are 70½ years of age or older you can make a transfer directly from your IRA to Seattle Rep without realizing any taxable income. If you are age 72 or older, this charitable transfer can also satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).

You may make a charitable rollover gift by instructing your plan administrator to directly transfer a gift to Seattle Rep.  Because your gift may be received without any name or contact info associated with it, please let us know you have made a gift by e-mailing giving@seattlerep.org.

  • You do not realize any taxable income on the transfer and cannot claim an income tax deduction for the gift
