Monthly Recurring Donation


When you set up a recurring monthly donation, you help provide valuable, predictable and sustained funding for the campaigns we wage on your behalf. Recurring monthly donations also help you budget your support of RI, by allowing you to break up a single donation into monthly increments. And because it’s automated, you can set up the monthly donation, for as many months as you like.


Gifts of Stock


Do you own stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that you’d like to convert but don’t want to pay capital gains tax on the appreciation?

Giving non-cash property enables you to help RI while conserving your cash for other uses. Plus, you may gain greater tax savings than you would if you made an equivalent donation of cash.

Using this secure tool, it only takes a couple of minutes to access account information to share with a broker or, if your brokerage permits, fill out the forms online to complete the gift electronically. This will be processed through our close sister organization, the Organic Consumers Association.

Matching Gifts


Ask your employer about a matching gifts program. Your employer may be among the thousands of companies, including corporations, foundations, nonprofits and associations that match their employees’ charitable contributions—sometimes up to twice the amount of the initial gift.

In addition to matching gifts of cash, some employers will match your gift of stock or securities. Some even match gifts made by employee spouses, retirees and board members.

The process is usually simple and it’s a great way to increase the value of your donation!

Donor-Advised Funds


A donor-advised fund (DAF) allows you to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. They work a lot like a charitable savings account.

The Internal Revenue has published a guide to establishing a donor-advised fund. But, you should contact your accountant or financial consultant for advice tailored to your specific situation.

Already have a DAF? This quick and secure online tool from our partner, FreeWill, can help you recommend a grant in just a few minutes. This will be processed through our close sister organization, the Organic Consumers Association.

Gifts From Your IRA


If you are 70.5 or older, IRA gifts are a powerful way to support OCA and possibly reduce your future tax burden. If you are subject to Required Minimum Distributions (RMD), making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) allows you to meet your RMD without increasing your taxable income!

With this secure online tool, you can save time filling out all the necessary forms from your IRA custodian or print out what you need to get started. This will be processed through our close sister organization, the Organic Consumers Association.

Bequest – FreeWill


As you plan for the future of your family, please consider providing for the future of RI’s work as well. Including RI in your will lets you support your commitment to public health and the environment well beyond your lifetime. It’s easy to leave a bequest of any specific dollar amount, or a percentage of your estate, by including the proper language in your will.

RI has partnered with FreeWill, which is the best online service for people to make their own will for free. It takes less than 20 minutes. You can also use this tool to draft your health directive.

When you donate your cryptocurrency to Ri, there’s no capital gains tax to pay, meaning a larger impact on our work today. Donating your crypto in support of RI may also allow you to receive a federal tax deduction against your income tax for the full value of the gift.

This secure online tool has no transaction fee, meaning 100% of your crypto gift will go towards supporting our work! This will be processed through our close sister organization, the Organic Consumers Association.

Make Your Own Fundraiser on FB


Ask your social media networks to donate to RI for your birthday. Or set up a Facebook fundraiser asking your friends to support a specific RI campaign.


Community Foundations


Some of our supporters make donor-advised contributions through their local community foundations. Community foundations make grants to a wide variety of charitable causes.

There are nearly 700 community foundations in the United States. Contact your local community foundation to learn how you can make a donor-advised contribution to RI. You can find the community foundation in your city or state here.

Every nonprofit struggles with operational costs and how to remain sustainable from year to year. You can help permanently support RI by making an endowment gift.

Endowment funds are managed to grow steadily over time. Each year, some of the earnings from the funds are distributed. Over time, an endowment helps us count on steady funding to meet our budget expenses. If you have questions about creating an endowment for RI, please contact accountant@regenerationinternational.org, or call us at +1 952-777-3239.



Charitable Remainder Trust


Many families use charitable remainder trusts (CRTs) to increase their incomes, save taxes and benefit charities.

A CRT lets you convert a highly appreciated asset (like stock or real estate) into lifetime income. It reduces your income taxes now and estate taxes when you die. You pay no capital gains tax when the asset is sold. And it lets you help one or more charities that have special meaning to you.

Consult your financial advisor or accountant if you would like to donate to RI through a CRT.
