Planned Giving

Thank you for your interest in learning about making a planned gift to NFPRHA. If you have any questions about the best way to make a planned gift, please call Elizabeth Franzino at (202) 552-0145 ext. 210. She would be very pleased to help you.

Making a Bequest
A bequest is when you provide now for a future gift by including a bequest provision in your will. Bequests are simple to enact and flexible - because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time. You can make a bequest by adding a statement such as the following to your existing will:

I give [___ dollars/ ___ percentage or all of the residue of my estate] to the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, Inc. (NFPRHA), a Washington, DC-based charitable corporation. NFPRHA is located at 1025 Vermont Avenue NW, 8th Floor, Washington, DC 20005. NFPRHA’s federal Employer Identification Number is 23-7323629.

Beneficiary Designations
You can easily add NFPRHA as a beneficiary to a life insurance policy, IRA, or retirement plan. To do this, contact your policy or plan administrator, request a ‘change in beneficiary’ form, and add NFPRHA using the organization’s full, legal name below:

Legal Name: National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, Inc.
Address: 1025 Vermont Ave. NW, Suite 800, Washington DC 20005
Tax Status: 501(c)3 nonprofit organization
Tax ID: 23-7323629

Gift of Traditional IRA / Qualified charitable distributions
A qualified charitable distribution (“QCD” or “IRA charitable rollover”) allows you to make a tax-free gift of up to $100,000 to the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association from your IRA if you are 70½ or older. A qualified charitable distribution is a great way to make tax advantageous contributions, especially if you don’t itemize your deductions. [The CARES Act suspension of the required minimum distribution from most retirement plans for 2020 does not appear to have been extended into 2021.]

Gift of Retirement Plan Assets
Another attractive option is to designate the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association as the recipient of some or all of what remains in your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), or other qualified plan when they end.

Gift of Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance could be right for you if:

  • Your life insurance policy is paid up or has substantial cash value.
  • You have no loan outstanding against the policy.
  • Your family is well-provided for by other means.
  • You would like to make a generous gift to the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association.

This option offers the additional benefit that you can change your mind about your gift at any time should circumstances in your life change.

New in 2021
Congress has provided several economic incentives to help address the far-reaching effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including additional tax incentives to encourage charitable giving. We would like to bring to your attention temporary tax rules for charitable giving enacted by Congress late last year as a part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. Note that these incentives are temporary and are scheduled to expire at the end of 2021.

You may deduct gifts of cash to most public charities to offset as much as 100% of your income! For the 2021 tax year, you may deduct cash contributions to the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association and most other public charities to offset up to 100% of your income. Ordinarily, the income tax charitable deduction for cash gifts is limited to 60% of your income. This 100% limit allows especially generous donors to reduce their federal income tax to zero. If you are even more generous, you can carry forward unused cash contribution deductions for up to five years.

It may not be the tax-wise choice to deduct up to 100% of your income. Because federal income tax rates are progressive, it is not a given that it will be to your advantage to deduct 100% of your cash contributions. Check with your financial or other advisors to determine whether the 100% deduction makes sense for your specific circumstances.

If you don’t itemize you may reduce your taxable income by $300 for your charitable contributions in 2021. If you do not itemize your deductions, you can reduce your taxable income by up to $300 (or $600 for married couples filing jointly) for contributions of cash to public charities.

Other Ways to Give
While bequests, life insurance gifts, and retirement plan gifts are the most common ways to make a planned gift, there are many others. Charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts pay you income during your liftime; charitable lead trusts pay a fixed amount to NFPRHA during your life with the remainder passing to your heirs. NFPRHA's Senior Director of Development, Elizabeth Franzino, would be happy to discuss these options with you by email or over the phone at or (202) 552-0145. 

Your Gift at Work

Your gift helps NFPRHA educate and advocate with policymakers, health care providers, and the public; conduct and participate in research; and offer its members capacity-building support aimed at maximizing their effectiveness and financial sustainability as providers of essential health care.
