Pocono Mountains United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community. 2020 was difficult for many; but because of your generosity, United Way served 15,018 people in our community last year.
Are you ready to make a difference in Monroe County? You can be the reason a senior citizen is fed, a family is housed, and a child has a safe place to learn and grow.
Now more than ever, United Way is working to do what we do best – help communities respond, recover, rebuild and reimagine for the long term. Give a gift today that will make a lasting impact.
Qualified Charitable Distributions
If you are age 70 ½ or older, you can make a tax-free donation to a qualified charity such as Pocono Mountains United Way from your IRA! In what’s called a qualified charitable distribution (QCD), you can donate all or a portion of your required minimum distributions (RMDs), up to $100,000 a year, directly to charity. While you don’t get a write-off for your gift, you also don’t owe taxes on that retirement-account distribution. This type of gifting during your lifetime can be an excellent way to fulfill your personal financial objectives while getting to participate in United Way’s impact today.
A donor advised fund (DAF), which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to United Way and other qualified charities. You can make an outright gift, recurring grants OR name us as a beneficiary of the remainder in your donor-advised fund.
TCB Promotions and Pocono Mountains United Way have partnered to offer the following promotion, Gift Every Giver.
Beginning March 1st, individuals that sign up to be a recurring monthly donor will be offered a FREE gift from TCB Promotions. Donate today and select monthly to make a lasting impact.
