Tax-Deductible Gift Language
To make a bequest that qualifies for a federal estate tax charitable deduction, you may direct your gift to the THE SIERRA CLUB FOUNDATION as follows. The tax ID# of The Sierra Club FOUNDATION is 94-6069890.
I give to The Sierra Club FOUNDATION, ______________ [amount or percentage] a California nonprofit corporation, currently located at 2101 Webster Street, Suite 1300, Oakland, CA 94612 (Attention: Gift Planning Program), to be used to support the charitable activities of Sierra Club for the protection and preservation of the environment.
Tax Note: A federal estate tax charitable deduction is usually not relevant for the many people whose estates are worth under $5,340,000 (or under $10,680,000 for a married couple). Those estates generally fall under the federal estate tax exemption. You should consult your own qualified financial and legal advisors to learn how the laws apply in your particular situation.
