The IRA charitable rollover has been made permanent and is a great way to make a gift and reduce your taxable income.

  • If you are 70½ or older, you can give up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to Kansas City Ballet
  • The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you still benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions.
  • If you have not taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
  • The transfer may be made in addition to any other charitable giving you have planned.
  • The gift needs to be made by Dec. 31, 2017, if you want your gift to qualify this year.

If you have any questions, contact Rebecca Zandarski, Director of Major Gifts, at 816.216.5597.


Your gift of appreciated stock can also provide you possible tax benefits. Please consult your broker and accountant to make the gift that is best for your situation.
