Giving Through Your IRA

Spruce Flats Bog

Support the Conservancy with a tax-free distribution from your IRA.

With your support, we can continue the legacy of open spaces, clean water, natural habitats, greener communities and other work that will improve the quality of life for generations to come.

If you are 70½ or older, you can make a tax-free distribution from your traditional or Roth IRA to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy without incurring federal income tax on the withdrawal. Distributions can total up to $100,000 annually.

How it Works:

  1. You direct lifetime distributions from your IRA or ROTH IRA to WPC.
  2. The distributions go directly to the Conservancy and are not subject to income tax.

A gift through your IRA may be for you if:

  • You are over age 70½.
  • You want to make a significant outright gift to support the Conservancy now.
  • You have adequate or surplus retirement savings.

To make a qualified distribution to WPC, please instruct your IRA custodian to issue a check to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, tax ID #25-1053485, at the following address:

Western Pennsylvania Conservancy
800 Waterfront Drive
Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Please remind your custodian to note your name and address on the transmittal.

For More Information:

Donors should consult their tax advisor to determine if supporting WPC with a gift from their IRA is a good option. For more information, please contact us at 412-586-2336 or
