Ways to Give

The IgA Nephropathy Foundation is a 501c3 charitable organization. Our mission is to support research to eradicate IgA Nephropathy while increasing awareness and supporting patients and their families with this disease.

One hundred percent of donations (unless otherwise designated by the donor) go toward IgA Nephropathy research. We work with individual and institutional donors to maximize financial support in order to find a cure for IgA Nephropathy. All donations are tax-deductible.

Put Your Donor Advised Fund to Work

Your gift from your donor-advised fund to the IgA Nephropathy Foundation will immediately be put to work to find a cure for IgAN. The IgA Nephropathy Foundation prescreens and selects research institutions to ensure your dollars have the greatest impact. For more information, please contact Sarah at sarah@igan.org or 848-298-4618.

Donating an old car, boat, truck, motorcycle, or RV to IgA Nephropathy research has a substantial impact on our ability to eradicate IgAN. Donating is easy and someone will come to you to pick up your donation for free. Simply call 855-500-7433 or visit https://careasy.org/nonprofit/igan.

Did you know you can donate stock to support IgA Nephropathy research? Donating stock shares is a win-win-win situation because your gift is tax deductible and you avoid paying capital gains while helping us to find a cure for IgA Nephropathy. For more information on making a tax-deductible donation of stock, please contact Sarah at Sarah@igan.org or 848-298-4618 by clicking below.

IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution

1: Do you want to help find a cure for IgA Nephropathy while reducing your taxes?

2: Are you at least 70½ years or older?

If you answered YES to the questions above, consider a charitable IRA rollover!

Use your required minimum distribution (RMD) for good. If you are at least 70½ years or older, you can satisfy your RMD and save on taxes by making a gift to support research for IgA Nephropathy directly from your IRA.

Funds remaining in retirement accounts after your lifetime are heavily taxed if left to someone other than a spouse. Many donors choose to use their IRA resources for charitable giving while leaving other less tax burden assets to family and friends.

Designating your gift to “IgA Nephropathy Foundation” will help fund IgA Nephropathy research to help eradicate this disease. For more information, please contact Sarah at sarah@igan.org or 848-298-4618.
