An Extraordinary Giving Opportunity

What began as a temporary measure has stood the test of time as a smart and powerful giving option for seniors.

In 2006, Congress approved a two-year “IRA Charitable Rollover Option” that allowed certain seniors to give sizeable tax-free qualified charitable distributions (QCD) to their favorite charities.  Since then the law was repeatedly reinstated in two-year increments until it became permanent in 2015.

As administrations have changed and tax laws have evolved, this truth has remained consistent: giving from an IRA remains the obvious choice for donors who qualify.

If you are at least 70 ½ years old, you can give up to $100,000 from your IRA (or $200,000 for couples) to Highland Christian School or the HCS Foundation and receive significant tax benefits in return.

Gifts from your IRA…

    • allow you to give in a substantial way without affecting your cash flow,
    • reduce your taxable income (whether or not you itemize!),
    • can be used to fulfill any charitable pledges you’ve made, AND
    • will fulfill all or part of your required minimum distributions.

It’s a time-tested, win-win, tax-wise giving solution!
