The initiative is a tax efficient way for Rotarians to support The Rotary Foundation. You can make a difference today and save on taxes when you support The Rotary Foundation through your IRA.
Why Consider a Charitable Gift via an IRA?
  • Your gift will be used today, allowing you to see the impact during your lifetime.
  • You pay no federal income taxes on the transfer.
  • The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
  • Fulfill existing pledges or use your IRA to make a new three-year pledge, and receive recognition in the pledge year to achieve Major Donor or Arch Klumph Society.
  • There could be opportunities to establish a named fund with gifts or commitments of $25,000 or more.
  • Know as a trusted steward of your gift, The Rotary Foundation will use your investment to help make the world a better place!
  • You are encouraged to seek the advice of your financial and/or legal advisor to determine if this is the best strategy for you.
