IRA Rollover Gifts

The IRA Charitable Rollover is now permanent!

How you benefit

  • The amount will count toward your required minimum distribution (RMD) and will not be included in your taxable income.

How it works

  • Taxpayers age 70 1/2 years or older can donate up to $100,000 per year, with the gift coming directly from the account trustee to Purdue University.

Additional information

On December 18, 2015, the U.S. Senate passed the Protecting Americans From Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (“PATH”), permanently allowing IRA transfers to qualified charities free of federal income tax. Qualified IRA account holders can now donate directly from an IRA to Purdue to help future generations move the world forward.
