IRA Charitable Rollover

Donors 70½ or older are once again eligible to move up to $100,000 from their IRAs directly to qualified charities without having to pay income tax on the money. The IRA charitable rollover is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2015, and will remain in effect for 2016 and beyond.

Here is a recap of the IRA charitable rollover rules. You can make a direct transfer if:

  1. The donor is age 70½ or older on the day of the gift.
  2. The donor transfers up to $100,000 directly from the donor’s IRA to one or more qualified charities. This opportunity applies only to IRAs and not to other types of retirement plans.
  3. The donor does not receive any goods or services in return for the rollover gift in order to qualify for tax-free treatment.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact Gini Calcerano, Senior Director of Research and Data Management at 215.242.7762 or
