To initiate a gift from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA):

  1. Contact your IRA plan administrator or financial advisor to request that they make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA to WPR. Your gift can be cash or stock, up to $100,000.
  2. Tell them WPR’s Federal Tax ID: 23-7363536
  3. Ask them to include your name and contact information with the gift.
  4. If you’re gifting cash (ie, a check), have them mail it to our lockbox:
    Wisconsin Public Radio
    PO Box 88025
    Milwaukee, WI 53288-8025
  5. If you’re gifting stock, direct them to transfer it via WPR’s broker:

  6. To ensure we acknowledge your IRA gift, let WPR know your gift is coming by contacting us at 800-383-9772 or Let us know how much it will be and from what institution so we can identify it when it arrives.

Benefits of giving via IRA:

Your IRA gift does not qualify for a charitable deduction. However, because WPR is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, you still realize significant advantages:

  • If you’re 70 ½ years or older, the donation reduces your taxable income.
  • The donation counts toward your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) if you have one.

If you have questions, and to let WPR know your gift is coming, contact us at 800-383- 9772 or Thank you!
