Making a gift from your IRA could be right for you
An IRA (Individual Retirement Account) charitable rollover may be an easy way to make a difference and help further our mission at Luther College. IRA owners age 70½ and older are able to make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD), up to $100,000. If you qualify, you are able to make a direct transfer from your IRA to Luther and avoid income tax on the transfer. This is a convenient and tax-efficient means of providing support. Learn More
If you have questions, or if you would like to make a qualified charitable distribution, please call Luther's Development Office at 563-387-1862 or 800-225-8664. Our development team will be more than happy to assist you in your planning. As always, we advise that you consult with your professional advisors for specific questions and advice regarding your personal circumstances.
Sample template letters for you to send to Luther and your professional advisor are available for download in the Related Documents section to the right.
Thank you for all you do to help advance the mission and vision of Luther. Your generous gifts have been, and will always continue to be, deeply appreciated and gratefully received.
