Tax Deductible Gift in 2017
You can make a contribution to the church or fulfill your pledge using your IRA. 

I f you are 70 1/2 or older:
  • You may transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to the church
  • If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for 2017, your gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
  • You pay no income tax on the gift.  The transfer generates neither taxable income nor tax deduction, so you can benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deduction.
Don't delay!  To help ensure that your gift counts this year, transfers will need to be made by December 29, 2017 (last business day of the year)
