IRA Charitable Rollover
Are you or someone you know age 72 or older? If so,support your charitable interests in the community with a tax-free gift, up to $100,000, from your IRA to FLAP!
The IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals age 72 and older to make a gift of a lifetime during their lifetime. Donors can make a qualified charitable distribution from their IRA directly to a qualifying charity, such as the Farmworker and Landscaper Advocacy Project, without declaring the distribution as income.
Who Should Consider an IRA Charitable Rollover?
- Individuals age 72 and older who have more money in their IRA than needed for daily living expenses and long-term care.
- Spouses who both have IRA accounts and do not need the income to support daily living expenses. Each spouse can transfer up to $100,000, tax free from their IRA.
- Generous donors who may give more to charity then they can deduct in a tax year (IRA Charitable Rollovers are exempt from federal income taxes).
- Donors who do not itemize deductions and regularly give a portion of their income to charity.
- Individuals who wish to gift up to $100,000 from their taxable estate.
Benefits of IRA Rollover Gifts:
- Your charitable gift will cost you less by using pre-tax IRA assets
- The IRA Charitable Rollover is not subject to income taxes
- Lower your taxable income for the year by using your IRA Charitable Rollover to meet your annual required minimum distribution
