IRA Charitable Rollover Rules and the New Tax Law

2018-03-28T21:24:13-06:00January 15th, 2018|Planned Giving|0 Comments

January 2018 ushered in a new tax law with many sweeping changes. The 503-page document left many CAI supporters wondering how their donations to charities will be affected, and what to do about the loss of possible deductions.  There is good news as the new tax law preserves the  IRA charitable rollover rules, more appropriately called a qualified charitable distribution (QCD), making it permanent. This allows donors to continue to donate directly from their IRA to nonprofit organizations like CAI. The new tax bill streamlines giving options through your IRA and opens up more opportunities to make a charitable donation through your IRA when it’s most convenient for you.

Snow is falling gently outside the window at CAI, and this year’s Journey of Hope magazine is at the printer ready to display a year’s worth of progress, challenge, and hope in its glossy pages. Gift-giving season has snuck up on us once again, and this year CAI is trying something new, a gift catalogue with a variety of charitable choices that make a meaningful gift for friends and family. Each gift in the catalogue goes directly to programs overseas, so you can be sure your donation gifts are doing the most good.

Many people associate a legacy with something that lasts after we are gone, but a legacy is a path that connects the past with the present and acts as a guide for the future.

Education heroes rise above hardship in 2014 ‘Journey of Hope’

“My own heroes are the dreamers, those men and women who tried to make the world a better place than when they found it, whether in small ways or great ones.
