Make a Gift of Your Retirement Assets
A retirement asset, such as an IRA account, makes an excellent gift to charity. If the IRA were given to your family, much of the value may be lost through estate and income taxes. By designating The Salvation Army Indiana Division as the beneficiary of all or part of your IRA (using a beneficiary designation form provided by your custodian), the full value of the gift is transferred tax-free at your death and your estate receives an estate tax charitable deduction.
