On December 16, Congress reauthorized the IRA (Individual Retirement Account) charitable rollover provisions for 2014. These provisions allow eligible persons to make a gift to Answers in Genesis (including the Ark Encounter matching gift program) with an IRA charitable rollover.
Donors age 70 1/2 and older may transfer up to $100,000 directly from their IRA to Answers in Genesis or other qualified public charities. The transfer will be made free of federal income tax and also qualifies for the donor's 2014 required minimum distribution (RMD).
You only have until the end of December of this year to take advantage of this opportunity. An IRA charitable rollover gift is an easy way to help further our mission of proclaiming the absolute truth and authority of the Bible, relating the relevance of a literal Genesis to the church and world today, and delivering the message of the gospel. Contact your IRA custodian to see how you can make an IRA charitable rollover before December 31, 2014.
