IRA Rollover

The IRA charitable rollover is a terrific way to make a tax-free gift to the US Sailing Foundation.  A donation transferred directly from your IRA to the US Sailing Foundation is not considered federally taxable income for you, but it does count toward your required minimum distribution.

Do I qualify?

  • If you are 70 ½ years older or older at the time of the gift, yes.
  • If the gift is sent directly from your IRA to the US Sailing Foundation, yes.
  • If the gift comes from a traditional IRA or Roth IRA account, yes.
  • If the gift does not exceed $100,000 ($200,000 for a couple) annually, yes.

It’s easy to set-up.  Just send a letter, sample can be downloaded below, to your IRA administrator to make an IRA charitable rollover gift.  For more information, please contact us: or (401-342-7900)
