Individual Retirement Account

Have you heard? If you are 70 ½ or older you can now make gifts directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to FACE without paying federal income tax on the withdrawal. 

How It Works: 

  • You must be age 70 ½ or older at the time the gift is made.
  • You must request from the IRA plan custodian a direct transfer of funds to FACE for the gift to be tax-free.
  • Each person may give up to $100,000 per year.
  • Gifts can be used to satisfy your IRA required minimum distribution each year.
  • Gifts can be designated for a specific FACE project or where most needed.
  • Funds held in other retirement plans such as a 401(k) or 403(b) plan are not eligible but may be rolled over to a standard IRA to then be used for a tax-free rollover gift to charity.

For more information call Carey Woodruff at 800-352-3223‬ for confidential personal assistance, or email Carey here.

FACE’s Tax ID Number is 54-20542-40.
