Support Our Work

Help NABA protect these critical pollinators. Together we can save butterflies across North America.

More Ways to Give

Many of our donors are choosing smarter giving, non-cash options that not only support our mission but may also offer a variety of valuable tax benefits. NABA has partnered with FreeWill to provide a number of tools to facilitate these donations. Click the buttons below to explore contributions of stocks and cryptocurrency, gifts from your IRA, and making a grant from a donor-advised fund.

Donating stocks allows you to avoid capital gains tax and often take a charitable deduction for the full value of the asset. Use this online stock tool from FreeWill, donate stock so we can track your gift, send you the correct receipt, and you can get the tax savings you deserve.

If you would prefer to make your donation through your broker, access our transfer information to notify NABA of your gift.

If you are 70.5 or older, giving from your IRA can help reduce your taxable income — and for those over 73 who must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), an IRA gift is a simple way to fulfill it! Use this tool to give from your IRA, you can auto-complete your paperwork and we can track your gift to send you the proper tax receipts.

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations today. This secure DAF link:

● Automatically links with your DAF
● Allows you to recommend how you’d like your gift to be used
● Notifies NABA of your intentions

We now accept donations of Ethereum, Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies! This gives us one more way to fund our work and can provide you with extra tax benefits. Give Cryptocurrency today:
