Giving Through Your IRA
If you are 70 ½ years of age or older and have a Individual Retirement Account (IRA) you can make an immediate impact to MemoryCare through an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift. An IRS provision allows you to donate up to $100,000 tax-free from your IRA each year to a qualified charity, such as MemoryCare.
Tax law changes effective 1/1/2020 will not affect this opportunity.
How an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift may benefit you
Generally, when you take a distribution from your IRA it is treated as taxable income. If your distribution is made directly to a charity, it is not included in your income. Therefore, you avoid taxes and can save on Medicare costs.
- Easy and convenient way to make a tax-free gift from a major financial asset!
- Deducted directly from your gross income!
- Counts toward your required minimum distribution!
Qualifications to keep in mind
- You must be 70 ½ years of age or older at the time of your gift
- Your total annual IRA Charitable Rollover gift(s) cannot exceed $100,000 in the calendar year of the gift
- Your transfer must be made to MemoryCare by December 31 of the year you would like to make the gift
- The transfer must be made from your IRA directly to MemoryCare
- Gifts from your IRA to donor-advised funds or life-income vehicles such as charitable gift annuities or charitable remainder trusts do not qualify as IRA Charitable Rollover gifts. If you have assets in a 401(k), 403(b), etc. you must first roll those funds into an IRA.

Making your gift is easy. If you are interested in supporting MemoryCare through an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift, contact your IRA Administrator.

Planned Giving is more than a term for planning your estate or for ways that you can make a long-term impact on an organization. For many, it is a conscious decision to leave a lasting legacy of support for those in need. For MemoryCare, it is a valued partnership that helps secure our long-term future. Your planned gift to MemoryCare ensures that we continue to provide comprehensive treatment for caregivers and individuals with memory loss, treatment with the care and dignity they deserve.
Estate planning or gift planning ensures the future for MemoryCare. For the donor, such gifts may lower taxes or even provide income. There are many options for gift planning from your estate: bequests, charitable gift annuities and/or trusts, donating appreciated common stock, gifting the qualified charitable distribution to fulfill the required minimum distribution (RMD) from an IRA account and more. Development Director, Janet Doyle, is pleased to help make this easy for you and would be glad to talk with you about giving options. Janet may be reached at 828-771-2219, or by email, email@example.com.
