Charitable IRA Rollover
A tax-wise gift from your individual retirement account (IRA)
charitable IRA rollover is a gift option that enables donors age 70 ½ and older to transfer
up to $100,000 directly from the donor’s IRA (or IRAs) to a qualified
charity each year. The donor does not recognize the transfer as taxable
income on his or her tax return. Likewise, this transfer may not be claimed
as a charitable tax deduction.
Here’s how it works:
- The donor must be 70 ½ or older at the time of distribution.
The donor can give up to $100,000 each year from his or her IRA(s). A couple
with separate IRAs can donate up to $100,000
each from their respective IRAs.
- The gift should be transferred from the IRA to the charity. The donor should
not accept any distribution of funds intended for a charitable IRA rollover.
Charitable IRA rollover is available
only for gifts from a traditional IRA and
not from any other type of retirement plan (401(k), 403(b), 457, Keough, ESOP, etc.).
- Please check with your financial advisor to determine how a charitable
IRA rollover give will impact you.

to private foundations, to donor advised funds, for life income gifts
(e.g., charitable remainder trusts), and for any purpose that entitles
you to receive a benefit, such as preferred seating at athletic events
or tickets to a dinner.
