Charitable IRA Rollovers:
One Way to Support RFFI
Folks who are required by law to take income out of their IRAs may find this an excellent way to reduce their taxes while supporting charities like RFFI.
In 2013 the IRS allows individuals over the age of 70 ½ years to make direct charitable contributions to 501(c)3 charities such as RFFI from a traditional or Roth IRA. These
Charitable IRA Rollover gifts may total up to $100,000 per person per year.
Although such rollovers do not qualify as charitable deductions, they can be used to reduce donors' adjusted gross income, which can result in paying lower income taxes than if you take a deduction. We encourage you to discuss this option with your attorney or financial advisor before making your decision.
Should you choose to support RFFI in this way, your donation must either be sent to us directly by the administrator of your IRA plan or the IRA plan can send you a check, made out to RFFI, and you can deliver it. The Tax ID number for the Redwood Forest Foundation, Inc. is EIN 68-0404767.
