IRA Charitable Rollover

The now permanently extended IRA Charitable Rollover law allows individuals 70½ or older to give up to $100,000 directly from their IRA to one or more qualified charities without paying federal income tax on the withdrawal. Donors who wish to make a gift to benefit YWCA Minneapolis or who are fulfilling an existing pledge may choose to make a qualified charitable distribution from their IRA.

IRA Charitable Rollover Details: 

  • Donors must be age 70½ or older at the time the gift is made.
  • Only traditional IRAs are eligible. However, owners of other types of qualified plans may roll assets into a new IRA to allow them to make gifts if such a rollover is otherwise permitted. Donors should consult with their advisor before doing so.
  • Donors must ask their plan administrator to make a direct transfer of funds to a qualified public charity. It is important not to withdraw funds before making a gift.
  • Gifts cannot be used to fund a gift annuity or charitable remainder trust.
  • Each donor may give up to $100,000 per year. For couples, each spouse may give up to $100,000 from their IRA.
  • Distributions made under this law can be used to satisfy the donor’s required minimum distribution (RMD). However, qualified charitable distributions are not limited to the donor’s RMD.
  • Donors can choose to exclude the distribution from income on their federal tax return. If they do, they will not receive a charitable income tax deduction.
  • To qualify for tax-free treatment, donors cannot receive goods, services, or a personal benefit (such as tickets for events) in return for the IRA charitable rollover gift.

To make a gift to YWCA Minneapolis from an IRA, contact your IRA plan administrator and request a direct qualified charitable distribution from the IRA account to YWCA Minneapolis, a 501(c) (3) organization.

  • Set up a monthly or one-time contribution and designate the contribution to Health and Wellness Scholarships. Automatic monthly donations are the easiest way to support the YWCA year-round and to maximize your giving. (For example, $10 a month is a $120 annual donation!)
