Yes. The IRA charitable rollover is a great way for you to make a gift to support United Way of the National Capital Area. The IRA rollover allows donors 70.5 years or older to transfer up to $100,000 directly from their IRA to United Way NCA on an annual basis. An IRA rollover gift is a tax-exempt distribution. Qualifying individuals can make charitable gifts using pre-tax IRA assets rather than taking a distribution, paying income taxes and using after tax assets to make a charitable gift. An IRA rollover gift can be used to meet all or part of an IRA’s annual required minimum distribution. Learn more at unitedwaynca.org/take-action/donate/planned-giving.
