Securities are most often used to support our work in the form of an outright gift. When you donate securities to NMCGRF, you receive the same income tax savings that you would if you wrote us a check, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer. Learn More
If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to support Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income taxes on the money. Learn More
Why Consider an IRA Rollover Gift?
- Your gift will be put to use today, allowing you to see the difference your donation is making.
- You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
- If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
Vehicle Donation Program
Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation (NMCGRF) has partnered with Melwood’s Charity Car Donation Center, a non-profit agency, to manage and operate our vehicle donation program. Melwood’s turn-key program supports more than 600 charities across the country. All net proceeds will be donated to NMCGRF.
Donate your used vehicle seven days a week, 24 hours a day. It’s as easy as filling out our online vehicle donation form.

Vehicle donations made to a charitable not-for-profit organization are tax deductible. The best practice is to consult with a tax professional on how to maximize your tax deduction since every car donation and tax situation is unique.
