  • Extension of IRA Roll-Over

    New Law Renews IRA Transfers to Charity for 2014
    Owners Must Act by Dec. 31 
    IRS Special Edition Tax Tip 2014-26

    The Tax Increase Prevention Act extends the provision that allows certain IRA owners to make tax free distributions to charity. The extension applies for the 2014 tax year. This means if the law applies to you, the deadline to complete your transactions is Dec. 31. Here are some key points about the extension: 

    • If you are an IRA owner age 70 1/2 or older you have until December 31 to make a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD. 
    • A QCD is direct transfer of part or all of your IRA distributions to an eligible charity. You may transfer up to $100,000 per year. 
    • You may exclude the distributed amounts from your income. You can claim this benefit regardless of whether you itemize your deductions. If you do exclude the QCD from your income, you can't also deduct it as a charitable contribution on Schedule A if you do itemize. 
    • You can count your QCDs in determining whether you meet the IRA's required minimum distribution
    • The provision had expired at the end of 2013. The new law is retroactive for 2014. This means any eligible QCD in 2014 will qualify. 
    • Not all charities are eligible. For example, donor-advised funds and supporting organizations are not eligible recipients. 

     

  • Gifts Of Stock

    By making a gift of appreciated stock, you can deduct the full market value of the stock and avoid incurring a capital gains tax. For instructions on making a gift with stock or mutual funds, or for more information, contact Jane Kamp, Director of Development, at 215.587.6912 or at jkamp@paballet.org.  PLEASE NOTE WE HAVE A NEW ACCOUNT FOR STOCK TRANSFERS so please call or email for updated instructions.

     

  • Matching Gifts

    Many companies match gifts to non-profit organizations made by their employees. Some also match gifts from spouses, board members, and retired employees. Contact your human resources department to determine if your gift qualifies.

  • Monthly Giving Program

    Breaking down your contribution into monthly payments can be a great way to make your gift over time.  You specify the monthly amounts and schedule.  Benefits are calculated based upon the total annual amount of your gift. To start your monthly gift, visit the online donation form, call 215.587.6904 or respond by mail. 

  • Planned Giving

    With a planned gift, you can save on estate and other taxes while providing for the future of Pennsylvania Ballet. Please consider making a bequest, donating retirement fund assets, or setting up a charitable gift annuity. For more information, please consult with your financial advisor or contact Jane Kamp, Director of Development, at 215.587.6912 or jkamp@paballet.org.
