IRA Charitable Rollover Contributions

A Tax Savvy Way to Support AWM

See Your Generosity in Action

AWM members who are 70½ years old or older can take advantage of an easy way to benefit the Association for Women in Mathematics and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income taxes on the money.  This federal law, passed in December 2015, no longer has an expiration date so you are free to make annual gifts to our organization this year and well into the future.

Why Consider This Gift?

    Your gift will be put to use today, allowing you to see the difference your donation is making.

    You pay no federal or state income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.

    If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift may satisfy all or part of that requirement.

The Association for Women in Mathematics is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and as such can receive a QCD. To make an IRA charitable rollover gift you must have the IRA custodian or trustee write a check to the Association for Women in Mathematics and mail to:

Association for Women in Mathematics

11240 Waples Mill Road, Suite 200

Fairfax, VA 22030-6078
