IRA Distributions

You can make tax-free gifts to ICOMOS-USA directly from your Traditional IRA, up to $100,000 each year (postmarked by December 31). These gifts count toward your Required Minimum Distribution. This popular provision in the tax code, made permanent in 2015, applies to all qualified donors, whether you itemize or not. While these charitable IRA distributions are non-deductible, they:

  • Do not increase your taxable income and are therefore tax-free.
  • Count toward your Required Minimum Distribution
  • Can be used to make your annual gifts and pledge payments to ICOMOS-USA for
    unrestricted support, endowment, and/or other purposes.
  • Another alternative would be making a gift of appreciated securities, which would allow you to avoid paying tax on the gains.
  • These gifts are easy to make, but there are special steps you must follow. Check with your financial advisor to determine if a Charitable IRA distribution is right for you.
