If you’re an older donor, an IRA charitable rollover is very easy and quite tax-efficient, leaving more money for Youth-Reach Houston (YRH) as well as your heirs.
Most often, all rolling over an IRA requires is for the donor to simply fill out a form with her or his IRA plan administrator, designating YRH as the beneficiary of the plan. Then, YRH gets the IRA funds directly, bringing the life-changing opportunity of a second chance to troubled teen boys.
An IRA charitable rollover might be the right choice for you if…
- You’re at least age 70 1/2.
- You want to avoid paying taxes on a gift to YRH of up to $100,000.
- You have a paid-up policy or you won’t use your whole retirement account.
- You want a generous and creative way to meet your IRA’s minimum distribution.
- You have a donor-advised fund that benefits YRH and want your IRA to finance that fund.
What else should I know about IRA charitable rollovers?
- The payout cannot be distributed to a person, only to a charity.
- YRH is not allowed to give quid pro quo benefits to donors who roll over their IRAs to us.
