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!
Lifelong learning needs believers like Bernard Osher, a respected businessman, community leader, and philanthropist. The development and delivery of quality educational programs for 50+ adults is important for sustaining quality of life and healthy minds. If you would like to help fund scholarships, programming, or our research, please contact our office at lifelongasu [d o t] edu.
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.
To give online, please visit: http://asufoundation.org/osher.
Please feel free to also print our Donation Flyer and mail it to the address listed on the flyer.
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] Ramirezasu [d o t] edu with more questions or to discuss your IRA charitable rollover options.
Donors can increase their support to OLLI at ASU through company matching programs, where companies match the gifts of the donor. Nearly 1,000 companies match contributions for employees, their spouses, and retirees dollar-for-dollar!
You can now sponsor a class of your choosing for $1,500! Make a donation and designate the Class Number and Name of the class you'd like to sponsor by emailing lifelongasu [d o t] edu or calling 602.543.6440. We'd love to thank you at the beginning of the first session of the class!
