Charitable IRA Rollover
For people age 70½ and older, the Charitable IRA Rollover is a tax-wise way to give to TTUHSC El Paso.
What is a Charitable IRA Rollover?
Beginning at age 70½, people with an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) are required to withdraw a minimum amount from their account every year. This is known as the required minimum distribution.
The required minimum distribution is taxed as income. People who do not need the income or who wish to reduce their tax liability can meet the required minimum distribution by transferring funds from their IRA to a charity. This way of giving is called a Charitable IRA Rollover.
