Gift Planning/Estate Gift
Gift planning can be an excellent way to make a lasting impact to benefit Edinboro University with gifts to the Foundation. Through a bequest, trust, a life-income plan such as an annuity, retirement assets or life insurance, you can make a significant legacy gift to support the University for years to come.
A gift of appreciated property can help you avoid capital gains and income taxes while making a substantial impact at Edinboro University.
We welcome gifts in honor or in memory of someone special. This is a unique way to celebrate someone and/or their accomplishments.
Many employers will match your charitable contributions. You could double, triple or even quadruple your gift to the Edinboro University Foundation. This is a great way to stretch your gift!
IRA Charitable Rollover
Don't Miss Your Chance: Make Tax-Free Gifts From Your IRA Today!
The IRA charitable rollover legislation allows you to transfer lifetime gifts up to $100,000 using funds from your individual retirement account (IRA) without undesirable tax effects.
You may contribute funds this way if:
- You are age 70½ or older at the time of the gift.
- You may transfer up to $100,000 directly from your IRA. This opportunity applies only to IRAs and not other types of retirement plans.
- You transfer the funds outright to one or more qualified charities. The legislation does not permit direct transfers to charitable trusts, donor advised funds, charitable gift annuities or supporting organizations.
- You make your gift by Dec. 31, 2013.
If you make your gift of up to $100,000 this year from your IRA, you can see your philanthropic dollars at work. You will get to see the joy of watching your philanthropy take shape. Additionally, you can fulfill any outstanding pledge you may have already made by transferring that amount from your IRA under this legislation as long as it is $100,000 or less for the year.
If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution, the charitable IRA rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement. Contact your IRA custodian
to complete the gift. Under the law, you can give a maximum of
$100,000. For example, you can divide your gift between organizations as
long as the total given is $100,000 or less. Any amount of more than
$100,000 in one year must be reported as taxable income.
If you have a spouse 70½ or older and has an IRA, he/she can also give up to $100,000 from his/her IRA.
Please consult with your tax professional and/or financial advisor if you are contemplating a charitable gift under the extended law. Please feel free to contact the Edinboro University Foundation office at (814) 732-1669 or send an email with any questions you may have.
