Give Through Your IRA

If you are 70.5 years or older and have an Individual Retirement Account, please consider making a tax-free donation to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation directly from your IRA. 


Donating From Your IRA

  • The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 permanently extends the IRA Rollover Provision. This provision allows donors of age 70.5 or older to make tax-free distributions of up to $100,000 from individual retirement accounts to a qualified charitable organization, such as the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.
  • A contribution can be transferred directly from your IRA to the charity of your choice. The amount of your contribution, up to $100,000, is excluded from your charitable income. Please note you will not be able to double dip and claim a tax deduction for the donation.
  • Only the IRA custodian can transfer gift amounts to a qualified organization. If IRA owners withdraw funds and contribute to a charity separately, amounts withdrawn will be taxable to the donor.
