Other ways to give

Matching gifts

Double the impact of your support through a matching gift from your employer. It’s easy to do: Search for your employer or company name below.

Stock gifts

A gift of stock or mutual fund shares can yield tremendous benefits for you and Marketplace. The process is simple! Stockbrokers require delivery instructions in writing.

To make a gift, you will need to give the following information to your broker:

Firm: UBS Financial Services
DTC#: 0221

Federal Tax ID #: 41-0953924
For the benefit of Marketplace/American Public Media, Account 1FX8140

UBS does not share donor information with American Public Media/Minnesota Public Radio. Please contact Rebecca Brown at stock@mpr.org or 651-290-1013 when you have completed your request to ensure that we are able to credit you for your gift.

Donor-advised funds

To make a gift through a donor-advised fund, please ask your fund adviser to specify the purpose of the gift as support for Marketplace in the gift letter. The check should be made payable to either American Public Media or Marketplace.

Both the check and the letter should be sent to:

c/o American Public Media
480 Cedar Street
Saint Paul, MN 55101

Giving from your IRA

This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short.

Giving from your IRA ensures your gift will be put to use today, allowing you to see the difference your donation is making. And even better, you pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deduction!

Since giving from your IRA doesn’t count as income, it can reduce your annual income level. This may help lower your Medicare premiums and decrease the amount of Social Security that is subject to tax. And finally, beginning the year you turn 73, you can use your gift to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution (RMD). When you do the numbers, you can support Marketplace!

No matter your age, you can designate Marketplace | American Public Media as the beneficiary of all or a percentage of your IRA and it will pass to us tax-free after your lifetime. It’s simple, just requiring that you contact your IRA administrator for a change-of-beneficiary form or download a form from your provider’s website.

To include MPR | APM in your plans, please use our legal name and federal tax ID.  

Legal name: Minnesota Public Radio 
Legal address: 480 Cedar Street, Saint Paul, MN 55101
