Other Ways to Help
This year those age 70 ½ and older may want to consider making a meaningful, tax-efficient gift to Sonoma Ecology Center using funds from their traditional or Roth IRA. With this way of giving you can:
- Make tax-free gifts each year from your IRA withdrawals by having a portion transferred directly to SEC (up to $100,000 per year for an individual; $200,000 per couple with separate IRAs).
- Use your Required Minimum Distribution for your gift to avoid taxes on the transfer of funds.
- Avoid increasing your adjusted gross income and potentially subjecting your Social Security income to a higher level of taxation by giving directly from your IRA.
- Provide a generous gift to SEC.
Please contact email@example.com if you need us to provide more information to you or your advisors.
