GIFTS THROUGH IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER (QCD)

If you are 70½ or older, you may want to consider an IRA charitable rollover, which could lower the income taxes from your required annual IRA withdrawals. A transfer must be made directly from the IRA administrator to a qualified charity, including Gillespie County Historical Society. Please contact your IRA plan administrator to initiate the rollover and to determine if this is the right type of gift for you to give. 

 

For more information, please contact Barbara Ford, Fundraising and Membership Director, at 830-990-8441, Ext 402, email bford@pioneermuseum.org

ESTATE PLANNING

Planned Giving is a thoughtful way to make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime but leaves a lasting legacy. You can donate stock, real estate, and other assets and benefit from tax savings, or choose from many additional options such as initiating a donor-advised fund. Long-term planning creates an opportunity for the Gillespie County Historical Society to sustain programs and improvements with confidence well into the future.
