IRA Charitable Rollover
The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (PATH) was signed into law by President Obama on December 18, 2015, permanently extending the IRA charitable rollover. Individuals aged 70½ and older are able to donate up to $100,000 to Pacific Science Center and other charitable organizations directly from their IRA, without treating the distribution as taxable income. In order to qualify, contributions must go directly to a public charity and be made from traditional IRAs or Roth IRAs. Learn more
Please contact the development team at firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 443-2878 if you have any additional questions.
A stock portfolio is often among the most valuable assets you own — and one that can carry substantial capital gains, or appreciation in value. With careful planning, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains tax while supporting our work. Learn more about stock donations.
