Annual Fund

Give to our Annual Fund or our New Revolving Fund

Cincinnati Preservation is having an impact on how the people in Cincinnati view the city. Historic preservation is the leading force of the current revitalization. Just look at the magnificent buildings, the neighborhoods, OTR, or the historic landmarks, such as the airport murals, which CPA has supported, helped, advised, and fought to preserve.

None of this would be possible with the support of passionate people.

Your contributions have helped Cincinnati Preservation raise awareness and appreciation of our unrivaled historic architecture and more.

Your Annual Fund gift acts as a vote of confidence, demonstrating your support of historic preservation in our region.

Unrestricted gifts allow CPA’s Board and staff to respond to the most essential financial concerns and provide the flexibility to seize unique and important opportunities that promote preservation.

Please consider making a generous Annual Fund gift.

IRA Charitable Rollover

For individuals age 70 ½ or older, the IRA Charitable Rollover is a tax-savvy way to support Cincinnati Preservation Association. If you are required to make annual withdrawals from an IRA account, these otherwise taxable distributions may satisfy your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and exclude these funds from your taxable income. *

Each year, you (and your spouse) can transfer as much as $100,000 to Cincinnati Preservation Association for a purpose that you choose.

What are the benefits?

  • Transfer tax-free gifts from your IRA directly to Cincinnati Preservation Association
  • Can be applied toward your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)
  • Beneficial for individuals who do not itemize deductions on their income tax
  • Withdrawals not subject to annual charitable deduction limitations
