Qualified charitable distributions

Doctors Without Borders office teams are working remotely as part of our collective effort to mitigate the spread of coronavirus. If you have mailed your donation, it will be held at the post office. All other donors, please use one of the following alternative donation methods:

  • Online: Visit our donation page
  • Mailing: Until further notice, please send all gifts, including donor-advised funds and IRA gifts, to our main processing center at: Doctors Without Borders, PO Box 5030, Hagerstown, MD 21741-5030
  • Wire transfer: please contact Donor Services via toll-free at 1.888.392.0392 or via email

If you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to reach out directly to Donor Services.

If you’re 70-1/2 or older, you can donate up to $100,000 per tax year directly from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to charities like Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD) are a great way to support our lifesaving work by allowing your dollars to go further: QCDs may be excluded from your taxable income and qualify towards your required minimum distribution (RMD).

If you’d like to make a QCD gift, your financial institution should make the check out to “Doctors Without Borders” and identify you as the donor by name and address.

They can mail the check to:

Doctors Without Borders USA

P.O. Box 5030

Hagerstown, MD 21741-5030
