Recent Changes Regarding IRAs

Thanks to recently passed legislation, American seniors can make the gift of a lifetime by gifting individual retirement account (IRA) assets directly to the Foundation free from federal taxes.

In 2006-7, a provision in the new Federal Pension Protection Act of 2006 allows those seniors aged 70½ and older to directly transfer up to $100,000 from an IRA to a charity this year—and another $100,000 next year—federal-tax free. If married, each spouse can transfer $100,000 per year from his or her IRA.

These gifts, made during your lifetime, can be used to establish various fund types. What a wonderful way to see your charitable giving at work!
