You will have the opportunity to leave a bequest to the Center if you so choose. It’s 100% free for you to use, and most people finish in 20 minutes or less.

Donors aged 70 1/2 and older with traditional IRAs are eligible to benefit from an IRA gift. This kind of gift is usually 100% tax-free and allows you to support Woodwell’s climate science research without increasing your taxable income. For donors age 72 and older, an IRA gift can also count toward your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), without the taxes associated with regular IRA withdrawals. Please consult your financial advisor or contact Beth Bagley with any questions.
