We gratefully accept your monetary donations, in-kind donations, stocks, and other gifts that will help us achieve our mission. We pledge to use the best stewardship of your investment to serve women and families in North Texas. All our services are offered free of charge to our clients. Our operating budget is raised primarily through donations from individuals, businesses, churches, and foundations. No donation is too large or too small! We are grateful for our financial partners that work with us to make it possible to reach out to women and their children in our community at their time of need, offering hope and practical medical and social services to help them make life-affirming choices.
Our operations are audited annually by an outside accounting firm. Copies of our most recent audited financials are gladly provided at your request. Additionally, our audited financial and operating records are reviewed by two additional professional organizations: ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) and Excellence in Giving, who has awarded IFLI with their Seal of Transparency.
IRA Giving Opportunities
“Thanks to tax law provisions made permanent in 2016, taxpayers age 70½ or older can make tax-free distributions directly to a church or charity from traditional IRAs or a Roth IRA up to $100,000 per year. (IRA direct charitable contributions to donor advised funds, supporting organizations, private foundations or charitable remainder trusts do not qualify.)
Under these new rules, taxpayers can transfer IRA funds from an IRA custodian to your church or charity without incurring income tax on the transfer. The donor may claim a charitable deduction only to the extent that the IRA was funded with after-tax dollars. Individuals may have made both pre-tax and after-tax contributions to a traditional IRA. Roth IRAs are funded with after-tax contributions.”

Donor Advised Funds
Donor Advised Funds allow individuals and families to take a current tax deduction for contributions made to the fund; this is an important feature because it allows a donor to take a tax deduction for all contributions at the time they are made, even though the money may not be dispersed to a charity until much later. This incentivizes donors who need a tax deduction to donate now and then decide where the money will go at a later time when it’s convenient or most needed. If you or your family have established such a fund in past years, now is an excellent time to show your support for the causes that are most important to your family in a time of unusual need.
We recommend that you consult your tax advisor to see what makes the most sense for you and your family. We are grateful for you, and we thank you very much for your support for Involved for Life, Inc. and other causes that advance God’s Kingdom in a world that needs to hear of His great love for us.
