Tax-Free IRA Rollover

You can transfer up to $100,000 annually from your IRA directly to a qualified charity, such as Tatnall, without having to pay income taxes on the money. A spouse with a separate IRA can also make a rollover gift of up to $100,000 if over 70 and one-half years old. 

The benefits include:
  • satisfies the required minimum distribution but is not included in taxable income;
  • avoids income tax on IRA withdrawals;
  • supports the important work of Tatnall with a tax-free gift.
To implement a Charitable IRA Rollover to Tatnall please contact your IRA provider and your financial advisor.

Annual Report

Matching and Corporate Sponsorship

Double or triple your gift through your company’s matching gift program. 

Many companies match employee contributions dollar for dollar. Forms may be obtained from your employer's human resources department and forwarded to Tatnall. Some companies also process gifts online. Matching gifts are counted toward the donor's membership in one of the annual fund categories. 
Throughout the year, we offer a variety of opportunities for businesses to sponsor programs and events.
