Thank you very much for your interest in making a gift from your individual retirement account (IRA) to Kenyon College. Direct transfers from IRAs for "qualified charitable distributions" or "charitable IRA rollovers" to Kenyon are permissible for tax year 2013 by Congressional action. Donors age 70 ½ and older may make cash gifts totaling up to $100,000 a year from their traditional or Roth IRAs to Kenyon College.
To make a gift, Kenyon recommends that the donor instruct the plan trustee to mail a check directly to the College or to transfer cash from the donor's account by wire directly to Kenyon's bank account. In all cases and at the same time, donor should advise Vice President for College Relations Sarah Kahrl of the transfer by mail, by telephone at 740-427-5154 or toll free at 800-KENYON-C (800-536-9662), or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
