IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts


In 2015, the IRA Charitable Rollver was passed by Congress and signed into permanent law by the President, allowing taxpayers aged 70 1/2 or older to transfer up to $100,000 annually from their IRA accounts directly to charity, thereby lowering the amount of income and taxes fromtheir IRA withdrawals. Rollover gifts can also satisfy the required minimum distribution for the year.  

Donors may choose to use the IRA Charitable Rollover to make a gift to the Chamber Music Society of Detroit's Annual Fund, Endowment Fund, or as part of a Planned Gift.
