Consider Planned Giving

As the year closes, many of us are considering our taxes and year end contributions. But are you aware that there is a way for you to make a meaningful gift to support a worthy cause, utilizing your IRA to take your required minimum distribution and skip the tax implications —it’s called an IRA charitable rollover.

  • You can avoid taxes on transfers up to $100,000 from your IRA to support a worthy cause.
  • You can reduce your taxable income even if you don’t itemize deductions.
  • You can make a gift that is not subject to the 50% deduction limits on charitable gifts.
  • You can use your IRA rollover to make payments on pre-existing pledges.
