Other Ways to Give


In addition to cash gifts, Blue Ridge Conservancy can accept donations of stock or mutual funds, as well as IRA charitable rollover gifts:

IRA Charitable Rollover. If you are age 70½ or older, you may be able to transfer up to $100,000 annually from your IRA directly to Blue Ridge Conservancy without first having to recognize the distribution as income. This distribution can count toward your annual required minimum distribution amount.

Stocks, Bonds or Mutual Funds. A gift of stock or mutual funds to BRC may provide you with a greater tax benefit than a gift of cash. Click here for Stock and Mutual Fund Donation Instructions.
