Other Ways To Giv


Ocean’s Harbor House has formed a collaboration with akaDareToLove. Orders placed with the code HARBOR will result in proceeds being donated to Ocean’s Harbor House.

Retirement Plans

A retirement plan can be a tax-efficient and simple way of including Ocean’s Harbor House in your estate plan. The best method is to name a charity as a beneficiary on your plan’s beneficiary designation form. Because charities do not pay income taxes on the donations they receive, distributions to charities will avoid being taxed as income. Your plan administrator can provide you with the appropriate forms. 

Giving From Your IRA

The IRA Charitable Rollover benefit is now permanent. If you are above age 70 ½, you can contribute (up to $100,000 annually) directly from your IRA account to a charity of your choice, like Ocean’s Harbor House. Your gift would count toward your required minimum distribution (RMD) and it would not be considered taxable income to you. You can call your IRA administrator to discuss a fund transfer. 

Donor Advised Funds

To designate Ocean’s Harbor House as a beneficiary of a Donor Advised Fund (DAF), recommend a grant from your DAF through your fund administrator. Ocean’s Harbor House Tax ID 22-2672209
