Having an Impact

"We wanted to give back to Delta College because our son, Paul, liked his program so much. His life will be remembered through the endowment in his name, which helps others pursue their career dreams."

Make a Tax-Free Gift from your IRA


On January 2, 2013, President Barack Obama signed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. The law includes an extension of the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) charitable rollover provision.

The provision exempts from taxable income any funds transferred from an IRA to a charitable organization, without recognizing the assets transferred as income. Basically, this means that a contribution made directly from your IRA to a non-profit – like Delta College – can allow you to avoid taking the income and paying taxes on those dollars. Generally, all withdrawals from traditional IRAs are subject to income tax at ordinary rates.

If you are an individual who is required to take IRA withdrawals, but don’t particularly need that income (or you’ve experienced limitations on tax benefits in the past), you may find the law of particular interest. There are very specific procedures to follow to make a tax-free gift of this type, so check with your tax advisor for the details regarding this charitable vehicle.
