Make a Charitable Rollover IRA Gift

Center for Courage & Renewal supporters can plan to get a tax break – while supporting more Courage & Renewal – with an IRA Rollover gift. With a charitable IRA Rollover gift, you get many benefits.

Benefits:

    • Use a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution to make a year-end gift to Center for Courage & Renewal and you don’t pay income taxes on the amount you donate.
    • Receive a quick and easy estate tax reduction.
    • Fulfill part or all of your required minimum distribution for this year.
    • Reduce assets in your IRA account, up to a total of $100,000 each year or $200,000 for married couples. For example:
      • Jane Brown wants to make a gift to Center for Courage & Renewal.
      • Now 71 years old, Jane must take a required minimum distribution from her IRA, which she would have to claim as income.
      • Jane doesn’t need the additional income, so instead, she uses a portion of her Required Minimum Distribution to make a year-end gift directly to Center for Courage & Renewal and avoids paying income taxes on the donated amount.
    • To qualify:
        • You must be 70 ½ years old or older when you make the transfer to the Center for Courage & Renewal.
        • The donation portion of your Required Minimum Distribution must be transferred directly from your IRA to the Center for Courage & Renewal.
        • The gift cannot exceed $100,000 in 2017 for an individual or $200,000 for a married couple.
        • Your transfer must be executed by December 31.
