More information on IRA Charitable Rollover Giving

IRA Charitable Rollover is a way for individuals who have reached age 70½ to donate up to $100,000 to WEDU directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income. Giving from your IRA is a great way to satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) tax-free and support WEDU’s mission to serve the public good and to aid in the creation of an informed citizenry. Though the new SECURE Act does increase the minimum age to take your required minimum distribution (RMD) from 70½ to 72 years old, you can still make tax-free contribution to WEDU PBS from your IRA starting at 70½.
