Maximize Your Year-End Charitable Giving…
…While Minimizing Taxes
Time is running out to make a 2018 donation. There are benefits to donating funds to non-profit organizations and listed below are a few options to consider.
- Are you 70 ½ or older?
If you are 70 ½ or older, consider making a donation to assist our mission to end homelessness by using all or part of your required minimum distribution from your IRA (up to $100,000 a year)…which is excluded from taxable income.
“It’s a win-win – for people who would rather give to charity than pay taxes and for the not-for-profit organizations they choose to support,” said Dave McGowan, president of the DuPage Foundation.
