Give from Your IRA

You may be looking for a way to make a big difference in support of the Golden West Chapter's mission and vision. If you are 70½ or older, you can power our work and enjoy tax benefits this year by donating through your IRA.

Flowchart: Donor directs IRA custodian to transfer a gift directly to the Golden West Chapter from the IRA.

Benefits of an IRA charitable rollover

  • Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to the Golden West Chapter
  • 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 deduction limits on charitable gifts
  • Ensure access to care and fuel the search for effective treatments and cures

How a gift from your IRA works

  1. Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA directly to the Golden West Chapter.
  2. Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to the Golden West Chapter in support of the ALS community.
  3. Please note that gifts from your IRA do not qualify for a charitable deduction.
  4. Please contact us if you wish for your gift to be used for a specific purpose.
