IRA Charitable Rollover
Now you can reliably plan charitable IRA rollover gifts, year after year. The charitable IRA rollover is a special provision that allows certain donors to exclude from taxable income -- and count toward their required minimum distribution -- certain transfers of Individual Retirement Account (IRA) assets that are made directly to public charities, including Catholic Charities.
