The team here at RSDSA is appreciative of the contributions provided to us as we work to fulfill our mission.
Since we are here to meet the changing needs of the CRPS/RSD community, we also want to inform our community of the ever changing ways you can help fundraise and donate to our organization. Here are a few ways you can donate to RSDSA so we can continue to provide support, education, and hope to all affected by the pain and disability of CRPS/RSD, while we drive research to develop better treatments and a cure.
Donating Funds From an IRA
Money that you have in an individual retirement account (IRA) can be donated to RSDSA. Additionally, if you have reached an age where you need to take required minimum distributions from your traditional IRA(s), you can avoid paying taxes on them by donating that money to charity.
You can also donate a “qualified charitable distribution” aka money you send directly to a charity from your pretax retirement account.
Create Facebook Fundraisers
Since RSDSA is a designated non-profit on Facebook, users often create fundraisers on our behalf throughout the year, especially on their birthdays or other important dates/holidays.
