The IRA Charitable Rollover act has been made permanent!



Individuals age 70 1/2 or older can make a rollover gift of up to $100,000 from their IRA to qualified charities such as Wilson College



Benefits of an IRA Charitable Rollover:

  • Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to Wilson College
  • Satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year
  • Reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions
  • Help further the work and mission of Wilson College

*This is not intended to be legal or tax advice. We encourage you to consult your own legal or tax advisor.


How an IRA Charitable Rollover gift works:

  • Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift (check payable to Wilson College) directly from your IRA to Wilson College. Wilson College's Tax ID is 23-1352692.
  • Your IRA funds will be transferred to Wilson College to help continue our important work
  • Please note that IRA charitable rollover gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction
  • Contact us if you plan on making a gift this way so we can ensure proper designation
