IRA Donations

If you are at least 70 ½ years old, you can use a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your IRA to support the rare disease community. Initiate a gift from your retirement account with NORD’s Tax ID #13-3223946, or by using this tool so we can track your gift and promptly send you a tax receipt.

Cryptocurrency Donations

We now accept donations of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Your tax-deductible gift of crypto is converted to U.S. dollars so we can put it to work toward improving the health and well-being of people with rare diseases. Donating crypto directly to charity can result in savings on capital gains and deductions to your income taxes.

Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) allows individuals to make charitable contributions and receive an immediate tax deduction. If you have a DAF, you can use NORD’s Tax ID #13-3223946 or donate easily through this secure DAF-giving tool to help us support the rare disease community. This tool integrates with your DAF automatically and saves you the extra step of notifying us about your gift.

NORD’s Rare Caregiver Respite program was an absolute lifeline for our family this past year. With the respite program, I was able to select a family friend who I trusted, who was already adequately trained to handle my daughter’s needs, and I could have her provide respite whenever I needed it. The reimbursement process was easy, and payment was received promptly.
