Give from your IRA: IRA Charitable Rollover, now permanent as of Dec 2015, allows individuals who have reached age 70 1/2 to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income. An essential detail is that your plan administrator must issue the check directly to the charity. Consult your plan administrator or tax advisor for more information about this means of giving and specific tax advice.
