Easy Ways to Donate

You can make a tax deductible donation through our secured website!

You can mail a check to our office at:

Tidewater Arts Outreach
809 Brandon Ave, Suite 300
Norfolk, VA 23517

Or you can call our Executive Director, Reese Beeler, at 757-965-5155 to arrange a time for her to pick it up and express our gratitude in person.

You can also donate directly from your IRA account! It’s easier than you may think!   
Transferring IRA assets to Tidewater Arts Outreach:
To roll over funds from an Individual Retirement Account please contact your IRA’s administrator to request a distribution to Tidewater Arts Outreach. If you are using the Charitable IRA Rollover option, you can transfer up to $100,000. If you are at least 70 1/2 years of age, those assets will transfer directly without counting as taxable income – but you still get to count it as a charitable donation!  
Three options for the transfer:
1 – The IRA administrator can mail a check directly to Tidewater Arts Outreach. The check must be payable to “Tidewater Arts Outreach”. On the memo line, your administrator should add your name and that the transfer is a distribution from your IRA – or enclose a note. The plan administrator can mail the check to: 
Reese Beeler, Executive Director
Tidewater Arts Outreach 
809 Brandon Ave, Suite 300
Norfolk, VA 23517
2 – The IRA administrator can send the check to you, but the check must be made payable to “Tidewater Arts Outreach”. You can then mail the check (as above) or we can arrange a meeting to receive it.  
3 – The administrator can make a wire transfer from the account directly. They should email Reese Beeler, Executive Director, or call 757- 965-5155 to let her know the transfer is pending. If you or your IRA administrator have questions or to let us know your gift is coming please email Reese Beeler at reese@tidewaterartsoutreach.org or call her at (757) 965-5155.
