Charitable Giving from your IRA

Those who are age 70 ½ or older can make gifts to charitable organizations from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA).  The funds distributed from the IRA are excluded from their taxable income for the year; therefore, no income tax is paid on the IRA distribution.  As a result, the contribution cannot be taken as a charitable deduction on Schedule A of their federal income tax return.

The contribution to charity can also qualify as part or all of the IRA required minimum distribution.  Any amount up to a maximum of $100,000 per year can be distributed to charities. The charitable contribution must be made directly from the IRA to the charity.   Therefore, the donor would need to notify his/her IRA custodian to make the charitable contribution on their behalf.

Gifting funds from an IRA is the most tax beneficial means of charitable giving.  Any distribution from an IRA is taxed at the ordinary income tax rate.  By gifting these funds to charity, the donor is never required to pay income tax on the distribution.  This is better than paying tax and receiving a charitable deduction, since the charitable deduction in many cases will not be 100% realized due to the loss of Schedule A deductions based on the taxpayer’s adjusted gross income.
