IRA gifts

You can help reach more people with biblical truth and receive significant tax benefits in return.

If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make a sizable gift from your individual retirement account (IRA) to Love Worth Finding to share God’s Word and receive significant tax benefits in return. You can give a tax-wise gift of up to $100,000 per year in IRA assets and make it possible for more people to hear the simple yet profound teaching of Adrian Rogers.

Requirements of a Qualified Charitable Distribution
You can give to charity from your IRA without any federal tax liability, as long as the gifts are qualified charitable distributions (QCDs). Distributions qualify for all or part of an IRA owner’s required minimum distribution (RMD).

  • IRA holders must be age 70 ½ or older at the time of the gift.
  • Give up to $100,000 per year as a single person or $200,000 per year as a married couple from separate accounts.
  • Gifts must be outright gifts made directly to a charitable organization.
  • Distributions to donor-advised funds, charitable trusts, or charitable gift annuities are not permissible.
  • Distributions may be made from IRAs, including a traditional IRA, inherited IRA, SEP IRA (inactive), or simple IRA (inactive). Other retirement accounts are not eligible.
