Make a Gift to AAUW through an IRA Charitable Rollover

You believe in empowering women and girls to reach their greatest potential in a more equitable world. Now you can advance that vision in a new way.

Many donors transfer funds directly and conveniently from their individual retirement account (IRA) to AAUW. And because a direct transfer of IRA funds to a charity counts toward your annual required minimum distribution, you may personally benefit from your donation as well.

How it works:

  • You must be 70½ or older.
  • Gifts must be made directly from your IRA to be free from federal income taxation.
  • You can transfer up to $100,000 per year.

If you qualify for the IRA charitable rollover, please contact AAUW or your IRA plan administrator to make your gift before December 31. AAUW provides a sample letter that you can fill out and send to your IRA plan administrator in order to start the distribution process.

Be sure to consult your legal or tax adviser to determine how specific rules may apply in your situation.
