Charitable IRA Rollover
Take Your Gift to New Heights
Charitable IRA rollover legislation has been extended through Dec. 31, 2013, so you can make tax-free distributions from your IRA to Boston College all year long.
Maximize your 2013 charitable gift—and create an immediate and tangible impact at the Heights.
Take advantage of this limited opportunity, and you can:
►Satisfy requirements for annual minimum withdrawals
►Avoid federal and, in many cases, state income taxes
►Provide critical support to the BC department, school, or initiative of your choosing
To be eligible:
►Donors must be 70½ years of age or older at time of distribution
►IRA transfers should be made directly from the account administrator to Boston College
►Gifts may total up to $100,000 per year
Making a Gift
Donors should contact their IRA administrator to request that a charitable distribution be transferred to Boston College. Most plans require this request in writing. You may use our sample letters for 2012 and 2013 gifts.
Checks payable to "Trustees of Boston College" may be sent to:

Note: The charitable IRA rollover extension is federal law; state and local law may not provide the same benefits.
