Qualification & Information
- You must be at least 70½ years old.
- Your gift can satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution for the year.
- You pay no income tax on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions.
- You can transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as the University of Idaho Foundation. This opportunity applies only to IRAs and not other types of retirement plans.
- If you will be writing a check from your IRA account, please mail by November 30, 2019 to ensure that it clears your account before December 31, 2019. Even if your IRA administrator writes the check, please note that your gift to the University of Idaho must be received by December 31, 2019 to qualify for this year.
