Give from Your IRA
Through Dec. 31, 2014, people age 70½ and older can exclude from their gross income qualified charitable distributions from individual retirement accounts. The exclusion may not exceed $100,000 per taxpayer in any tax year.
One essential detail: your plan administrator must issue the check directly to the charity. And because your contribution is not taxable income, you cannot claim an additional charitable deduction. Examples show, however, that gifting funds directly from your IRA is one of the most tax beneficial means of charitable giving.
Consult your plan administrator or your tax advisors for more information about this provision. Learn more »
We hope you will take advantage of this special opportunity to impact conservation. Please consider the Land Trust Alliance and your local land trust with your generous contributions.
