You may be looking for a way to make a big difference to help further the mission of Cru. 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 help continue our work and benefit this year. Please consult your financial advisor to see if this is a good option for you.
Benefits of an IRA charitable rollover
- Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to our organization
- Satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year
- Reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions
- Make a gift that is not subject to the 60% deduction limits (100% for cash gifts during 2020) on charitable gifts
- Help further the work and mission of our organization
How an IRA charitable rollover gift works
- Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA to Cru. Fill out this form and send it to your IRA Custodian to release the funds to Cru.
- Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to our organization to help continue our important work.
- Email, fax, or mail a copy of the completed form to Cru. Doing so will ensure that you receive the correct tax credit and that the proceeds are designated as intended.
- Please note that IRA charitable rollover gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction.
Please note: Many times, IRA checks do not include information about you or your intentions for the gifts. As a result, your gift may not benefit the particular staff or ministry you had in mind if you do not contact us with your specific preference for your gift.
