Individual Retirement Account – Charitable Rollover

Make a difference while reducing your tax burden! You can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as Portland Revels without having to pay income taxes on the money.

Reasons to consider this gift option: 

– Beginning in the year you turn 72, you can use your gift to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution (RMD).

– You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.

– Since the gift doesn’t count as income, it can reduce your annual income level. This may help lower your Medicare premiums and decrease the amount of Social Security that is subject to tax.

Please note: We must receive your gift by Dec. 31 for your donation to qualify this year. If you have check-writing features on your IRA, please be aware that your check must clear your account by Dec. 31 to count toward your required minimum distribution for the calendar year.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is like a charitable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations that are important to you.

When you contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth, and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity.  Speak to your financial planner to set up a donor advised fund.

If you wish to make a donation to Portland Revels from your donor advised fund, please request that checks are made payable to Portland Revels and mailed to the following address:  Portland Revels, 128 NW 11th Avenue, Portland Oregon, 97209

Portland Revels tax identification number is 13-1134622
