Funds generated from these gifts, large and small, help shape HRA’s academic programs, support outstanding teachers and enable talented, motivated students to attend the school.
Congress has extended a tax break on charitable donations from individual donor's retirement accounts retroactively to January 1, 2014. This provision allows individuals 70 1/2 and older to donate up to $100,000 ($200,000 for a couple) in IRA assets to a qualified charitable organization such as Hampton Roads Academy. The IRA charitable rollover is tax-free and not included in a donor's adjusted gross income. Gifts also will qualify for the donor's 2014 required minimum distribution (RMD).
The window of opportunity on this retroactive extension is short so please contact your financial adviser soon about your IRA and RMD. If you decide to distribute a charitable gift from your IRA,to Hampton Roads Academy, ensure that your IRA's administrator transfers it directly from the IRA to HRA.
