For those who qualify, it's not too late to make a 2012 donation!
Because this legislation was enacted in January of this year, qualified distributions made after December 31, 2012 and before Feb. 1, 2013, will be counted retroactively for the 2012 tax year.
Who is eligible and what are the basic requirements?
Donors must be at least 70½ or older
Funds must be transferred directly from your IRA to the charity
Your total IRA charitable gifts must not exceed $100,000
Those who are eligible may use funds from their IRA to pay an existing pledge and/or make a new gift.
We particularly invite our supporters to make a gift to the URJ's Annual Campaign, which will enable us to put your charitable gifts to work where they
are needed most .
