Gifts from your IRA
Are you 70 ½ years of age or older? Please consider taking advantage of an opportunity to reduce your taxable income while supporting Settlement Music School with an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift.
The Qualified Charitable Distribution from an IRA allows donors 70 ½ years or older to make gifts directly to Settlement Music School and not include the amount gifted as taxable income. An IRA Charitable Rollover Gift can satisfy some or all of your annual Required Minimum Distribution, and reducing your taxable income could provide a variety of tax savings opportunities.
If you qualify, please consider using these funds to support Settlement’s programs that benefit thousands of students each year.
