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 can 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
