Legislation allowing tax-free IRA gifts from individuals age 70 1/2 years or older was made permanent in December 2015. Distributions of up to $100,000 per person per year must be made directly from your IRA to POST and count toward your required minimum distribution.* Checks often arrive without identification, so please email Jeanine Crider, Director of Planned Giving, or call (650) 352-6312 and indicate your name, the name of your IRA administrator and the amount of your distribution.
*NOTE: The CARES Act, signed into law on March 27, 2020, waives required minimum distributions in 2020 from IRAs. This is not intended as definitive tax or legal advice. We recommend you consult your advisors with any questions about your particular situation.
