Estate Planning: IRA Rollover
In 2015, Congress enacted a permanent extension of the IRA charitable rollover. As a result, individuals age 70½ or older can make gifts directly from their IRA to charity in 2015, 2016, and beyond.
You may be looking for a way to make a big difference to help further our mission. If you are 70½ or older, you might be interested in lowering the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. An IRA charitable rollover is a way you can help continue our work and benefit this year. Download the “IRA Charitable Rollover” document below for instructions.
- Avoid taxes on transfers up to $100,000 from your IRA to our organization.
- Satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year.
- Reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions.
- Make a gift that is not subject to the 50 percent deduction limits on charitable gifts.

How an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift Works

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends, or GAiN as part of your estate plan, or you can make a bequest using a beneficiary designation form.

Types of Bequests
- Percentage bequest—make a gift of a percentage of your estate.
- Specific bequest—make a gift of a specific dollar amount or a specific asset.
