You Can Use Your IRA to Support Families Forward Virginia
An IRA charitable contribution provides a tax benefit for those over age 70 1/2. Not only does your gift make a big difference for Virginia’s families, it counts toward your required minimum distribution and isn't included in your adjusted gross income. You can transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA, but donations of any amount make a difference in saving.
Consider using this special program to give to Families Forward Virginia while addressing your required minimum distribution and incurring no tax penalty.
