    IRA Charitable Rollover

    For those aged 70½ or older, it is once again possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRA accounts. On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed into law legislation that retroactively extends the charitable IRA rollover for 2015 and makes this 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 New School. Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year in which the gift is made. To make a contribution from your IRA account, ask your IRA administrator to make a distribution directly to The New School.
