- Mail us a check. Feeling the old style vibe? Send a check made out to Ausable River Association P.O. Box 8 Wilmington, NY 12997. We love going to the PO and receiving checks in the mail.
- Gifts of Stock. Another way to support the Ausable River Association is via gifts of appreciated stock. Contact Kelley Tucker to transfer stock or other securities through our Raymond James & Associates account.
- Donor Advised Fund. A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program, administered by a third-party such as a community foundation (e.g. the Adirondack Foundation) or an investment firm. Talk to your advisor or, if you have a DAF with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon, you can donate here using DAF Direct.
- Make us a beneficiary of your IRA. Designating the Ausable River Association as a beneficiary of any funds remaining in your pension or individual retirement account (IRA) is another option. Please contact us if you've made us a named beneficiary.
- Or, if you are age 70½ or older and have an Individual Retirement Account, you can donate up to $100,000 each year from your IRA. The distribution will not be taxed as income as long as: the charity is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions, the charity is not a section 509(a)(3) supporting organization, and the withdrawal goes directly to the charity. For additional information, please consult your tax adviser or attorney.
- Gifts through your will. You can plan a future gift to the Ausable River Association through your will. We recommend that you consult an attorney to prepare or revise your will.
