They’ll even pick it up for you! Get details about the process here.
IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts (Qualified Charitable Distributions)
If you own an IRA, you can make a tax-free transfer to Greenbelt Alliance this year and into the future. The 2018 tax law updates offer added incentive to make a tax-free gift of Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA to charity. Even if you don’t itemize, you’ll get a tax benefit from your IRA rollover gift while taking advantage of higher standard deductions. IRA owners, age 70 1/2 or older, can use some or all of their RMD to make a gift to charity. By reducing taxable income, IRA gifts can lower your tax bill, and Greenbelt Alliance can use 100% of your IRA gift to protect the Bay Area’s open spaces and advocate for smart growth development.
IRA Rollover gifts are easy to arrange. Simply direct your plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA account directly to Greenbelt Alliance (Tax ID – 94-1676747) and contact us to indicate you are making a gift. Please include your name, the name of your IRA administrator, and the amount of your distribution. For questions or to learn more, contact us at 415-543-6771 ext. 302 or email@example.com.
