The International RRP ISA Center (RRP ISA for short) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax exempt charitable organization offering Information, Support and Advocacy (ISA) to the RRP community. This includes parents, families, patients, children and health care professionals.
Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
Some can afford less while others can afford more, but most people who benefit from information, support and advocacy offered here should be able to send something.
As you also should know, RRP ISA has its own budget and is distinct from any other RRP organization.
We'll spare you long motivational speeches: You all know that what we do costs money.
Giving back counts even more when it so tangibly helps your community. It gets even better when your gift is matched, as described above.
The easiest way to donate is through our encrypted secured-socket credit card gateway.
We thank you in advance for your generosity.

Protecting your information is important to us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your online order information. NOTE: You will be taken to the SSL pages AFTER you have reviewed your Shopping Cart (donations summary).
To check the security of your connection, look at the lower right-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the SSL server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active. You also can double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https."
You can also confirm the security of your transaction by clicking on the Trustwave Certificate.
Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers like the ones we use to process orders. In that case, you'll be unable to connect to the server, which means you won't be able to mistakenly place an order through an unsecured connection.
Because of the nature of donations, they should be considered "final" upon completion. If you have second thoughts, we will, of course, work with you to try and ensure your satisfaction.

PO Box 4330

Your check should be payable to the International RRP ISA Center.
(3) You may also make a United Way contribution through monthly employer deductions, indicating that you want these tax-deductible donation to be sent to the International RRP ISA Center. It is important that your designation show our name and Federal ID (91-2156850). It appears that United Ways (UWs) do have individual discretion as to whether they will allow allocations to be designated for charities that are not in their pre-approved/board-approved package. That means that while 99 out of a 100 UWs could indeed allow for designation to a specific non-profit that does not appear on their list, another could routinely deny it because the "administrative cost of doing it could be deemed too high." Prospective donors therefore need to check first.
Retirement fund gifts to a child or grandchild often end up being very costly because of various taxes and penalties. When you use your IRA assets to fund a gift to the International RRP ISA Center, you preserve your assets and join a discerning group of individuals who understand the tax benefits of estate planning.
A will or living trust is the simplest way to create a charitable gift in your estate plan. By creating a will or making a simple revision to your will, you can provide for the needs of loved ones and feel confident that people you trust will manage your affairs as you have directed.
If our services have special meaning to you, a simple codicil to your existing will is all that is needed to include us in your estate plans. The wording is very simple. "I hereby give, devise and bequeath (describe dollar amount, property or proportion of residuary estate) to the International RRP ISA Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation with headquarters in Seattle, WA., for its general educational, service and charitable purposes."
Your will can direct your personal representative to set aside a certain percentage of your estate to establish an endowment for International RRP ISA Center. This fund bearing your name will provide a perpetual flow of income to the International RRP ISA Center for generations to come.
Naming the International RRP ISA Center as a beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy is an easy way to support the ISA Center with a gift larger than you may have thought possible.
Without taking any assets or current income away from your financial pool, you can make a significant investment in the future of the International RRP ISA Center. Regardless of whether you have a policy through your employer or one that is privately owned, this type of gift is easy to make. Like a bequest gift, you may want to designate a specific sum, such as $7500.00, or a percentage, such as ten percent (10%),
GIFTS OF STOCK
Gifts of appreciated securities can save you taxes in three ways. Capital gains tax on the appreciation is avoided, as there is no sale. You can take a charitable deduction for the full, fair market value of the stock. The gift is removed from assets subject to estate taxes. You also stretch your giving power.
Instead of writing a check for $10,000, you just contribute the appreciated stock.
