As part of your retirement withdrawal strategy, using your Minimum Required Distribution may not be subject to income tax if paid directly from your retirement account to the LCF. Please consult with a tax advisor to determine if you can make such a Qualified Charitable Distribution.
Donations to NRGs
You can donate to the Neighborhood Response Groups (NRG) in Larkspur or Greenbrae. These groups are organized in many neighborhoods to prepare for disasters like earthquake or fire. When you donate to NRGs by clicking the button belowt, you will be forwarded to PayPal. Please scroll down to “My NRG” then fill in the name of your local NRG in the notes section. Your donation will be placed in an account for your NRG and your NRG will be notified of the donation. The PayPal screen will say you have donated to the Larkspur Community Foundation but your donation will go to your NRG and the acknowledgement we mail will reflect your designation. Unfortunately PayPal only allows for 10 designation options and there are many more NRGs so this is the best way to be sure your NRG receives your donation.
