Qualified Charitable Distribution through an IRA

If you are age 70 ½ or older, you can make a contribution to the Center through your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Such transfers must be made directly from your IRA to the Center for Railroad Photography & Art, and may not exceed $100,000.

Appreciated Securities

Gifts of appreciated stocks provide direct financial support to the Center and may offer tax advantages to you. 

To discuss making a gift of securities or through your IRA please reach out to Inga Velten, development director, inga@railphoto-art.org

To understand the tax implications and benefits of your situation, consult with your financial advisor or tax professional. Tax laws change, and the advantages of giving from an IRA or other asset depend on your unique financial circumstances and goals.
