By directing a portion of your DAF to Penny Forward, you help us provide crucial financial education and resources to those who need them most. Your generosity ensures that more individuals can access our self-paced courses, weekly workshops, and personalized financial counseling.

Support Through Qualified Charitable Distributions

Are you 70½ years old or older with an IRA? You can make a tax-wise contribution to Penny Forward by using a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). This method allows you to donate directly from your IRA to Penny Forward, potentially reducing your taxable income and fulfilling part of your required minimum distribution (RMD).

How to Contribute via QCD

  • Contact Your IRA Custodian: Request a direct transfer from your IRA to Penny Forward Inc. Our EIN is 87-2376924. Our DTC number is 0226. Our account number is Z40415008.

By choosing to donate through a QCD, you’re not only benefiting from potential tax advantages but also significantly impacting the lives of those in the blind community by supporting essential financial education services.

Amplify Your Impact Through Workplace Giving

Many employers offer workplace giving programs that can double or even triple the impact of your donation to Penny Forward. Through payroll deductions or employer matching gift programs, you can support our mission of providing comprehensive financial education to the blind community easily and effectively.

How to Donate Through Workplace Giving

  • Check with Your Employer: Ask your HR department if your company has a workplace giving program and if Penny Forward Inc. is one of the eligible nonprofits. Our EIN is 87-2376924.

  • Request Employer Matching: If your employer offers matching gifts, fill out the necessary forms to have your donation to Penny Forward Inc. matched, doubling the support without extra cost to you.

By participating in workplace giving, you not only enhance your contribution but also spread awareness of our cause within your workplace.
