Planning Giving / Endowment Fund

Did you know that you can donate to HOHNW directly from your IRA and not have to count the distribution as income? You can instruct your IRA trustee to make the contribution directly to HOHNW. Donors who may benefit are individuals whose charitable contributions are reduced by the percentage of income limitation. You can work with your professional adviser to determine the effect on your specific tax situation. 

The IRA Charitable Rollover provision has been in effect since 2006, but expired several times. It was made permanent on December 18, 2015. This information came from the Council on Foundations website. Click here for details. If you would like help with gift planning, please call the office at 461-1473.
