Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

Are you looking for a tax-effective way to make a gift to the Handel and Haydn Society? A charitable gift rollover from your Individual retirement account (IRA) may be a good option. If you are at least 70 ½ years old, IRS regulations mandate that you take a required minimum distribution (RMD) from your tax-deferred IRA each year. These RMD payments count as taxable income, and can have implications on your tax liability and eligibility for certain tax credits and deductions.

The IRA Charitable Rollover Act permits people age 70 1/2 or older to make tax-free gifts of up to $100,000 directly from their IRAs to nonprofit organizations like H+H. Such gifts have three important benefits – they support H+H’s mission; they reduce your taxable income; and they count as part of your RMD from your IRA.
