Consider an IRA Charitable Rollover
Your IRA Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) = tax free charitable contribution. Taxpayers, age 70½ or older who are required to withdraw IRA funds may donate a portion of your RMD directly to an eligible charity, such as the Tallahassee Senior Citizens Foundation, and not have to pay taxes. Making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA – up to $100,000 – by the IRA trustee to a charitable organization, counts toward your minimum distribution requirement for the year and is nontaxable. 
Contact your IRA administrator to direct a charitable distribution on your behalf. Sample IRA Charitable Distribution letter (click here)
