Make a Tax-Free Gift From Your IRA
You've worked hard, saved diligently and are ready to enjoy your retirement years. Maybe you're also looking for a way to give back to the organizations and causes that are important to you. Consider making a gift from your IRA.
If you're 70½ or older, you can use the IRA charitable rollover to make a tax-free gift to Whitworth University. This law allows you to transfer up to $100,000 directly to a qualified charitable organization without paying income tax on the distribution.
When you use the IRA charitable rollover to make a gift to Whitworth:
- Your gift will be put to use today, allowing you to see the difference you're making for the students we serve.
- You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer doesn't generate taxable income or a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions.
- If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
