IRA Charitable Rollover
Are you at least 70 1/2 years of age? You can avoid realizing taxable income by directly transferring from your IRA to Historic Seattle. If you’re 72 or older, a charitable transfer may also help you meet your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). To make a charitable rollover gift, simply instruct your plan’s administrator to directly transfer a gift to Historic Seattle (up to $100,000 per year; Historic Seattle’s tax ID is 91-1729777). Please consult your financial advisor to best evaluate how donating through your retirement fund can benefit you and your specific circumstances. If you have made a distribution to Historic Seattle or would like a sample letter of instruction for your plan administrator, please notify Erika Carleton, Director of Philanthropy, at (206) 622-6952 ext. 222 or email@example.com.
