Donating from Your IRA Account is an Egg-cellent Idea!
You can save on taxes while hatching new lives for Christ in Asia.
Your nest egg can help you save on your taxes while helping people in Asia.
If you are 70½ or older and own a traditional IRA, please consider making an IRA charitable rollover gift this year.
A gift of up to $100,000 made directly from your IRA to Gospel for Asia will:
- not be included in your taxable income
- satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the year
- reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions
- not be subject to the 50% limitation on charitable gifts
- bring help and hope to many people in Asia needing to know of Jesus' love
Donating through an IRA Charitable Rollover is easy.
Just contact your IRA administrator to request the transfer. They should have a form for you to fill out to make the request, or you could print and use this sample letter. In order to qualify for the current year’s income tax return, the request should be made in time for the check to leave the administrator’s office on or before December 31st.
Let us know so we can acknowledge your gift and honor your preferences.
After you request an IRA Charitable Rollover from your IRA administrator, please contact our Strategic Giving Department with the following information:
