Gifts from your IRA The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015, which passed on December 18, 2015, includes a provision that extends the IRA Charitable Rollover permanently. The IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals age 70½ or older to directly transfer up to $100,000 per year from an IRA account to BIDMC, without having to count the transfers as income for federal income tax purposes. This transfer also counts toward your minimum required distribution on your IRA accounts.
Planned Gifts You can also support BIDMC through our Planned Giving Program. Life income gifts serve a dual purpose: They provide philanthropic support for BIDMC while also providing both a charitable income tax deduction and an income stream to you and/or your loved ones.
