What is an IRA Rollover?

An IRA Rollover is a tax-efficient method of transferring funds from one individual retirement account (IRA) to another or to Cure SMA without triggering a taxable event.

  • An IRA Rollover allows individuals aged 70½ or older to transfer funds from their traditional IRA directly to Cure SMA without incurring income taxes on the distribution.
  • The distribution from the IRA is excluded from the donor's taxable income, providing a tax-efficient way to support Cure SMA.
  • IRA Rollovers are subject to annual contribution limits and must be made directly from the IRA custodian to Cure SMA to qualify for tax benefits.
  • This strategy is particularly advantageous for donors who are subject to required minimum distributions (RMDs) from their IRAs, as IRA Rollovers can satisfy RMD requirements while supporting Cure SMA.

Benefits from an IRA Rollover:

  • Tax-efficient charitable giving: IRA Rollovers allow donors to support Cure SMA without incurring income taxes on the distribution, potentially reducing taxable income.
  • Satisfaction of RMD requirements: IRA Rollovers can satisfy required minimum distribution (RMD) requirements for individuals aged 70½ or older, providing a tax-efficient way to meet distribution obligations.
  • Impactful charitable contributions: Donors can make significant contributions to Cure SMA using funds from their IRA, and align them with their philanthropic goals.
  • Potential reduction of taxable estate: By reducing the value of the IRA through charitable donations, donors may be able to reduce the size of their taxable estate and estate tax liabilities.

How an IRA Rollover Works

The distribution is excluded from the donor's taxable income and can be used to satisfy required minimum distribution (RMD) requirements. IRA Rollovers must be made directly from the IRA custodian to Cure SMA to qualify for tax benefits.
