How You Can Donate to CBI  
Good News!  

Good News!  Tax-Free Gifts from IRA Accounts Have Been Reauthorized!

Congress has reauthorized legislation that allows donors to make charitable gifts from their IRA accounts (including Roth IRAs) without incurring income tax on the withdrawal. It was passed as part of the Emergency Stabilization Act of 2008. If you are age 70 ½ or older and are required to take minimum withdrawals and you do not need them for personal use, this may be a great way to make a gift to CBI or pay your Temple Dues. While you cannot claim a charitable deduction for IRA gifts, you will not pay income tax on the amount. Without this law change, withdrawals from IRAs for charitable gifts are taxable to the donor. Your tax-free gift may be a payment of existing dues, pledge or a new gift. For the current tax year, you must act before December 31.
