Ways to Give

A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust

A gift in your will or living trust continues your investment in helping the world's most vulnerable people beyond your lifetime — and often allows you to make an even bigger impact than you ever thought possible. Whether you give a set amount or a percentage of your estate, your act of kindness and humanity restores their dignity and gives them hope for the future. Learn more

Charitable Gift Annuities

When you use cash or stock to establish a charitable gift annuity at USA for UNHCR, you'll receive secure, fixed payments for life for you and/or someone you choose. You'll also receive tax benefits. After your lifetime(s), the remaining balance will help bring lasting change to children in need. Learn more

Calculate Your Benefits


If you're looking for a tax-smart way to help refugee familes, consider a gift of stock. When you give appreciated stock that you've owned for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction when you itemize. Get transfer instructions

Use Your IRA

If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit USA for UNHCR and receive tax benefits in return. You can give any amount up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to USA for UNHCR without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is known as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) and is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover. Learn more
