The IRA Charitable Rollover: Those 70 1/2 or older can make a charitable gift of up to $100,000 from their IRA and exclude the donated amount from their taxable income. The donation will count as part of the IRA required annual payout. The IRA Charitable Rollover provision is retroactive back to January 1, 2015 so that distributions made before December 31 can be excluded on 2015 tax returns filed next year.  But, because the provision is permanent, IRA Charitable Rollover distributions can be made at any time in the coming years.

The Eno River Association is the only nationally accredited land trust serving Durham and Orange counties. Donors can rest assure that their contributions are supporting an organization that has met rigorous national criteria for its policies and practices with more than 40 years’ successful experience in land protection, environmental education, and grassroots advocacy.
