If you’re at least 70 ½ years old, you may make a tax-free charitable gift to Population Connection directly from your traditional IRA. Your charitable gifts up to $100,000 will be considered part of your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year. You can effectively reduce your taxable income for the year while making a generous gift to support our work.
To qualify for a Special Tax-Free Charitable IRA Rollover with Population Connection, please make sure:
- You will be at least 70 ½ years of age on the date of your gift.
- Your giving does not exceed a total of $100,000 each year from your traditional IRA(s).
- You are giving from a traditional IRA and NOT from any other type of retirement plan (such as 401(k), 403(b), 457, Keogh, ESOP, etc.).
- You instruct your financial institution to make the contribution directly payable to Population Connection.
A sample letter of instruction for the charitable distribution and an IRA Rollover form are provided below for you to mail to us. For more information, please contact Jennifer Lynaugh at firstname.lastname@example.org (202)974-7710.
