Give Through Your IRA

Are you 70 ½ years or over?

Do you have an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)?

Do you make contributions to charities?

Would you like to make a tax free donation?

If the answer to ALL of these  questions is YES, then please consider making a donation to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), directly from your IRA. 

  • The recently passed America Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 extends the IRA Rollover Provision through December 31, 2013.  This provision allows donors age 70 ½ or older to give charities, such as CCFA, up to $100,000 per year from their IRAs, tax-free.
  • It is not too late for an IRA Rollover gift (up to $100,000) to apply for 2012.  IRA Rollover gifts made through January 31, 2012 can count as 2012 contributions.
  • If you have taken an IRA distribution during the month of December 2012, a donation can be counted as a charitable rollover if contributed to a charity as cash before January 31, 2013.
  • Throughout 2013, a contribution can be transferred directly from your IRA to the charity of your choice, the amount of the charitable contribution (up to $100,000) is excluded from your charitable income but you can’t double dip and claim a tax deduction for the donation too.
  • Please consult with your IRA manager and tax advisor for more details.

To make a donation to CCFA, contact your IRA administrator by letter with your instructions and provide the following information:

  • Amount of your donation
