IRA Distributions

At age 70 ½, IRA owners are required by law to take mandatory minimum distributions. An increasingly popular way to make gifts tax-free, transfers to WFSU must be made directly from the IRA or by writing a check from the IRA up to a $100,000 limit. Now that the IRA Charitable Rollover legislation is passed permanently, this enables donors to plan each year in advance. To make an IRA gift to WFSU, you will need to give the following information to your broker or fill out WFSU's IRA Form:
