Charitable IRA Rollover Opportunity is

Now Permanent

In recent year-end legislation, qualified charitable distributions from individual retirement accounts (IRAs) have been made permanent.

If you are 70 ½ years old or older, you can make donations directly from your IRA to The Carmel Foundation without paying any federal income tax today or estate and income taxes on this gift in the future (up to $100,000 for an individual; each spouse can transfer up to $100,000 from his or her IRA annually).


To make a contribution, simply instruct your IRA trustee or custodian to make a transfer from the IRA directly to The Carmel Foundation. Gifts for 2016 need to be received by 12/31/16.


Contact your financial advisor or Kimberly, Director of Development for additional information:

A small group of Village leaders from around the state have been working to envision a Coalition, realizing that when individual Villages come together, the potential for positively effecting people's lives is much greater. CVC would help individual Villages leverage statewide numbers to strengthen advocacy efforts, develop sustainable business models, and achieve economies of scale. A coalition would build greater public awareness of the positive impact Village membership
