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. Starting at age 70 ½, IRS regulations allow individuals to make gifts directly from their IRA to charities of their choice using a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). While recent changes in legislation raised the age for required minimum distributions (RMD) to 72, donors are still able to make gifts from their IRA starting at age 70 ½.

These rules mean that donors may make gifts of up to $100,000 directly from their IRA to nonprofit organizations like H+H. In most cases, these gifts are excluded from your taxable income, and have the possibility of reducing your current or future RMD obligations.*

To make a gift to the Handel and Haydn Society from your IRA, or have any questions, please contact us at development@handelandhaydn.org. Please note our tax ID #: 04-2126598.

*This is not intended to provide tax or legal advice. H+H encourages all donors to consult with an independent tax or legal advisor to determine how any gift will impact their own tax situation.
