Daniel was a retired businessman who volunteered for our organization. When we decided to add a new program, he was excited to help in a significant way.
Daniel: I really wanted to make a larger gift than normal, but I had questions about the best way to fund my gift. I was also concerned about conserving my cash resources for the future.
Daniel learned about the possibility of using his IRA to make a gift for this program. Because Daniel was already over 70 ½, he could take advantage of the IRA rollover option this year and make the gift to us directly from his IRA.
Daniel: I knew that I didn't really need all the income from my IRA this year. I had enough income from sales of my investments to cover my living expenses.
Daniel decided to rollover $50,000 from his IRA to our organization. He was able to continue to make his normal charitable contributions in addition to the IRA gift without exceeding Federal limits.
Daniel: I was thrilled to discover that I could transfer money from my IRA to charity without paying any federal income tax. The fact that my gift qualified for my required minimum distribution amount was an added bonus!
There have been several changes to IRA gift guidelines in 2020. Please contact us or call 317-224-1039 for more information and instructions on where to send your gift.
