Interested in making an IRA gift?

If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make a contribution of up to $100,000 annually from your IRA account to help the children of St. Jude.

A donation transferred directly from your IRA to St. Jude is not considered federally taxable income for you, but it does count toward your required minimum distribution. Act before December 31 to receive this potential tax benefit for 2016.

For more information, please call (800) 395-4341, or have your IRA administrator use our sample letter to help you make a charitable rollover gift to St. Jude. As always, please consult your advisors to determine if this type of gift is right for you.
