IRA Gifts

At Early Childhood Alliance, we rely on donations to build better futures for children, and we can’t do this without you. Every dollar you give will allow us to reach thousands of families a year through our programming occurring at our three learning centers and childcare provider programming occurring off-site.

Donors 70 ½ or older can make a tax-wise gift directly from your IRA to a qualified charitable organization. This gift opportunity is known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)*, and it can have a real impact here at Early Childhood Alliance.
