IRA Gifts

How Your IRA Can Support Scottish Rite Charities

What Is an IRA Gift?

IRA gifts (often referred to as IRA charitable rollovers or Qualified Charitable Distributions) are tax-wise gifts from your retirement savings to support our Scottish Rite charities.

Generally speaking, IRA gifts are always tax-free, whether or not you itemize deductions on your return.

IRA gifts are mutually beneficial gifts because they can:

  • Reduce your future tax burden;
  • Help you meet your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD);
  • Create an immediate impact for those we serve.

Key Qualifications for IRA Giving

AGE Must be 70.5 or older
