 Using your IRA to Make a Difference Today
Did you know that IRAs can help fund community programs and projects important to you? And, you don’t need to wait until year-end to make a gift. In fact, due to the lead time needed to process such gifts through your IRA administrator, it is better initiated well ahead of time.
Many donors took advantage of the IRA Charitable Rollover in 2018 and helped fund philanthropic needs in their communities. Anyone with an IRA who is older than 701⁄2 years of age may distribute up to $100,000 annually from their IRA directly to Acts Legacy Foundation. This qualified charitable distribution can replace your required minimum distributions, which would otherwise be taxed.
Your IRA administrator can initiate the distribution to Acts Legacy Foundation at your request. You can make an IRA gift directly if you have the IRA check writing feature offered by some plan administrators. Be sure to reference that
you are making an IRA gift and indicate your fund designation on the reference line of your check.
Acts Legacy Foundation is here to help. We can supply important information such as our IRA Charitable Rollover FAQs and a sample letter of instruction for your IRA administrator. Please contact us at 877-287-0799 or
Acts Legacy Foundation recommends that you discuss issues with your attorney, financial planner, tax advisor and/or family before making any substantial gift.
