Donate through Your Donor-Advised Fund

You may not have known that the Tax Foundation is eligible to receive gifts from your donor-advised fund, sometimes known as a giving fund. Common fund administrators include Vanguard Charitable, Schwab Charitable, Fidelity Charitable, National Christian Foundation, DonorsTrust, and the Bradley Impact Fund.

Use our convenient tool below to automatically advise a gift from your fund.

Don’t see your fund administrator listed in the tool? No problem! Simply contact your administrator and advise them you would like a gift made to the Tax Foundation using our EIN: 52-1703065.

Increase Your Impact through Employer-Matched Gifts

We’ve partnered with Double the Donation to make your gifts to the Tax Foundation as impactful as possible.


Double the Donation allows you to easily search for your employer to see if they will match your donation to the Tax Foundation. They will then help you submit the necessary materials to have your eligible gift doubled, or even tripled.

Donate Stock or Bonds

Transferring securities to the Tax Foundation allows you to make a gift and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full, fair market value of the securities. You pay no capital gains on your gift and neither does the Tax Foundation.

The best method of transferring these assets to the Tax Foundation is to contact your broker and electronically transfer them from your account to the Tax Foundation’s account. Avoid selling the assets and then making a gift of the proceeds, because this will trigger a capital gains liability for you.

In order for the Tax Foundation to acknowledge your gift and provide you with an IRS receipt, please take the following steps:

  1. Call or email our Development staff at (202) 464-5109 or and let us know that you would like to make a gift of stock.
  2. Please be prepared to provide your name, your phone number, the name of the stock you are giving, and the number of shares (e.g., 20 shares of Microsoft).
  3. Call your broker with the information listed below.

The following information, to be provided to your broker, will expedite the transference process:

Clearing Information: Vanguard
DTC: 0062
Tax Foundation Account Number: 33234409
Tax Foundation EIN: 52-1703065

NEW: We are proud to announce the launch of the 1937 Society.


1937 Society Logo

Thank you for considering us in your will or estate plans. It’s truly an honor.

Establish a Charitable Gift Annuity

By establishing a charitable gift annuity with the Tax Foundation, you’ll receive annual income for life at higher rates than available through most CDs and savings accounts.

The income you receive is based on the gift amount and your date of birth (designed for persons of retirement age). You receive dependable income for life and a tax deduction reducing your income taxes. And, your gift will help make the Tax Foundation even stronger in our fight to support sound tax policy.

For more information and to see a personal summary of benefits, or to receive an illustration of a charitable annuity at the Tax Foundation, please call or email our Development staff at (202) 464-5109 or
