    IRA to Gift Annuity Rollover

    You may be looking for a way to help further our mission and enhance your income. If you are 70½ or older, you can make a one-time IRA rollover to fund a charitable gift annuity and receive fixed payments for life.

    Benefits of an IRA to gift annuity rollover

    • Reduce your taxes with a one-time transfer of up to $53,000 from your IRA to a Gift Annuity
    • Receive lifetime fixed payments for you and, if you choose, for your spouse
    • Potentially reduce your required minimum distribution (RMD) this year
    • Help further the work and mission of The Salvation Army Great Lakes Division
