At the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, our members become part of a network that builds the kinds of relationships that define an exclusive, vibrant and engaged learning community. Please consider a financial contribution to support the growth of  that network and your educational opportunities here with us!

Your gift to the institute is an investment that will help propel our success today - and in the future.  Funds will be deposited with the ASU Foundation, a separate non-profit organization that exists to advance ASU as a New American University. We thank you for your generous support.

IRA Charitable Rollover

What is an IRA charitable rollover?
The IRA charitable rollover, or qualified charitable distribution (QDC), is a permanent special provision allowing certain donors to make annual gifts that count toward their requ red minimum distribution, and not be subject to income taxes on the distribution.

What gifts qualify for an IRA charitable rollover?
- Made by a donor age 70 1/2 or older
- Transferred from a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA directly to a permissible public charity (such as ASU Foundation)
- Cannot exceed $100,000 per tax year

What about the required minimum distribution?
If you haven’t already taken the required minimum distribution for the year, a qualifying IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy this requirement.

Can this apply to other types of retirement plans?
No, this only applies to a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA.

Contact Andrea Ramirez at Andrea [d o t] J [d o t] Ramirezatasu [d o t] edu with more questions or to discuss your IRA charitable rollover options.
