Make IRA Distribution
You can make tax-free gifts to the VTF directly from your Traditional IRA, up to $100,000 each year (postmarked by December 31).
This popular provision in the tax code, made permanent in 2015, applies to all qualified donors, whether or not you itemize. While these charitable IRA distributions are non-deductible, they:
Do not increase your taxable income and are therefore tax-free
Count toward your Required Minimum Distribution
Can be used to make your annual gifts and pledge payments to the VTF for unrestricted support, Endowment, and/or other purposes.
Give Appreciated Securities
This option would allow you to avoid paying tax on the gains. These gifts are easy to make, but there are special steps you must follow. Check with your financial advisor to determine if a Charitable IRA distribution is right for you.
