How you benefit by giving through your IRA
- You avoid the income tax penalty on your distributions.
- You have the satisfaction of seeing your gift immediately support programs that can make a direct impact in defending our democracy.
How it works
To make a gift from your IRA directly to RepresentUs Education Fund, contact your IRA administrator and request a transfer from your account to RepresentUs Education Fund. Importantly, your IRA administrator must send us the money directly, or it will count toward your taxable income.

Here’s a brief checklist to help you find out:
