Gifts via IRA Charitable Rollovers

The charitable IRA rollover, also called a qualified charitable distribution, was made permanent in 2015.  Since 2006, many UA donors age 70 ½ or older have used this option to make qualifying charitable gifts that were excluded from taxable income and counted toward their required minimum distribution (RMD).  To qualify, gifts must be transferred directly from the IRA provider to The University of Alabama and meet certain other requirements.  This provision applies to people age 70 ½ or older at the time the transfer is completed.  Please note that an individual taxpayer’s total charitable IRA rollover gifts cannot exceed $100,000 per tax year.  We encourage you to check with your financial advisors about the best ways for you to take advantage of this opportunity as you consider gifts to the University and other charitable interests that are important to you.

It is simple to make a transfer. Contact your account administrator to request a check be delivered to the address below. Envelopes must be postmarked no later than December 31, 2022.

If you have IRA check writing abilities, your check must be deposited before December 31, 2022. Please ensure your check is received by our office no later than December 16, 2022.
