Gifts from your IRA

With the recent passing of a new tax code, a gift from your IRA directly to charity is more advantageous than ever. An IRA gift can reduce your tax burden and fulfill your charitable interests.

A gift from an IRA is right for you if:

  • You are 70.5 or older, AND
  • You do not need the IRA income (required minimum distribution) this year, OR
  • You are taking the standard deduction on your taxes.

By giving directly from your IRA you are able to exclude that distribution from your adjusted gross income, which might keep you out of higher tax brackets. 

Contact our Director of Philanthropy, Kristin Bramell if you are interested in this way of giving.
