A Tax-Wise Way to Support SOS  
If you are over the age of 70 1/2, you can donate part of your IRA, up to $100,000, to a qualified 501(c)(3) organization, like SOS.  For those already taking required minimum distributions from their IRA, this can be an ideal way to lower your taxable income.

Tax ID Number 46-2589389
