IRA charitable rollover

You may be looking for a way to make a big difference and support VCU. If you are 70½ or older you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. An IRA charitable rollover is a way you can support VCU and benefit every year you do.

Benefits of an IRA charitable rollover

  • Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to VCU*
  • Satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) of up to $100,000 for the year
  • Reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions
  • Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts
  • Support something that is important to you at VCU

How an IRA charitable rollover gift works

  1. Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA directly to VCU.
  2. Your IRA funds are directly transferred to VCU* to support an area that is important to you.
  3. Please note that IRA charitable rollover gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction because they are not included in your income.
  4. Please contact us if you wish for your gift to be used for a specific purpose.
