Special Tax-Free IRA Gifts to the Museum

If you are 70½ or older, it’s possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from your traditional and/or Roth IRA account. On December 18, 2015 legislation was signed into law that makes the charitable IRA rollover provision permanent for future years.

A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from traditional or Roth IRAs to one or more qualified charities such as the Friends of the Children’s Museum at La Habra free from federal income tax each year.

There may also be state income tax savings.

Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift.

To make such gifts, it is important to not withdraw funds prior to a gift, but have the gift amount distributed directly from an IRA to one or more qualified charities.

For those with check writing privileges on their accounts, this may be the most efficient way to make gifts directly from an IRA.

Please contact Roy Mueller at or 562-383-4242, your IRA administrator or your tax advisor for more information about making a donation to the Museum through your IRA.
