Transfer Funds from IRA Charitable Rollover

The IRA Charitable Rollover was made permanent for 2015 and beyond through a provision of the “Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015”.

This allows people age 70½ or older to make direct transfers up to $100,000 per year to charitable organizations from their Individual Retirement Accounts, without the withdrawal being treated as taxable income.

  • From which accounts can I make transfers? Transfers must come from your Individual Retirement Account(s) directly to the ACLU Foundation. The Charitable Rollover does not apply to 401(k), 403(b), or other retirement plans.
  • To which organizations can I make gifts? You may make gifts to tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organizations, including the ACLU of Virginia Foundation.
  • How do I make an IRA Charitable Rollover? Contact the financial institution that holds your IRA about how to instruct them to make a direct charitable transfer.  You may instruct them to make a distribution to American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia, 701 E. Franklin Street, Ste. 1412, Richmond, VA 23219 Tax ID# 52-1283242.   Please notify us if you would like a sample letter of instruction to send to your financial institution.
  • Benefit of Giving from Your IRA:  Giving directly from your IRA to the ACLU of Virginia Foundation is not considered a taxable withdrawal.  These gifts will be tax free.
