IRA Gifts

If you are older than 70½, you may transfer up to $100,000 per year from your traditional IRAs to charity, which can count as you required minimum distribution.

The transfer is not taxable if you follow the rules for a qualified charitable distribution (QCD). The gift stays out of your adjusted gross income if you make a direct transfer from your IRA to the charity. Ask your IRA administrator about the steps to take to make a generous and tax efficient gift to New England Science & Sailing.
