IRA Charitable Rollover

You are here

The IRA charitable rollover is now permanent and is a terrific way to make a tax-free gift to Elizabethtown College using your qualified retirement plan.  This gift may also satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD).

How Do I Qualify?

  • You must be 70 ½ years old or older at the time of the gift.
  • Gifts must go directly from your IRA to Elizabethtown College.
  • Gifts must come from a traditional IRA or Roth IRA account.
  • Gifts cannot exceed $100,000 per donor.

Benefits of an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift

  • Gifts can satisfy your RMD without increasing your income taxes.
  • You will not pay taxes on your IRA withdrawal when gifted to Elizabethtown College.
  • You may direct your gift to a program or area of your choice. 
  • It is a wonderful way to create an immediate impact on Elizabethtown College.

The Office of Gift Planning can provide you with a letter to send to your IRA administrator to make an IRA charitable rollover.
