IRA Charitable Rollover

The IRA Charitable Rollover is now a permanent provision of the Tax Code, allows people age 70½ and older to make direct transfers totaling up to $100,000 per year to qualified charities, without having to count the transfers as income for federal income tax purposes.

Other Non-Cash Gifts

We also have experience in accepting a variety of complex gifts such as personal property, life insurance, privately held stock or interest in limited partnerships.

Planned Gifts

We invite you to explore the benefits of planned giving. You can leave a legacy or add to an existing fund by including Mathews Community Foundation in your will or living trust. Or, you may choose to take advantage of a charitable vehicle that allows you to provide for your loved ones, while reducing taxes and supporting your favorite charitable organizations or causes.
