Great news! Charitable IRA Rollover Is Permanent

As of December 2015, the Charitable IRA Rollover has been permanently extended through the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015. It’s a wonderful opportunity for individuals ages 70 ½ and up to make tax-free contribution through their IRA. To qualify, the gift must be:

  • Made by a donor age 70 ½ or older at the time of the donation.
  • Transferred from a traditional or Roth IRA directly to WESA.
  • Between $100 and $100,000 per IRA holder per year. It will count toward your required minimum distribution.
  • Transferred by December 31 to apply to the tax year. Act now! See sample transfer letter to plan administrator. 

To determine if IRA Charitable Rollover is right for you, review this charitable IRA worksheet, and  these Frequently Asked Questions,  or consult your tax professional.

Contact Kathleen Iducovich, WESA’s Director of Major Giving at 412.697.2943 if you would like any assistance completing your charitable gift.
