GIVE BY DONOR-ADVISED FUNDS
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is like a charitable investment account: As a donor, you can contribute to your fund as frequently as you prefer and then recommend grants to non-profit organizations, like Ridgefield Academy, using the funds from that account. You can begin the process of making a gift by DAF on our giving page.

IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER
IRA Charitable Rollovers allow you to make tax-free charitable gifts directly from your Individual Retirement Account to Ridgefield Academy and Landmark Preschool. These rollovers (QCD's) allow donors who are at least 70.5 years old to donate money directly from their IRA's without it counting as taxable income.  To learn more or begin this process, we encourage you to consult your financial advisor.
