Your gift to the BA blesses so many — and can benefit you as well

Did you know?
There are ways to contribute to the Benevolent Association that may also reduce the amount of taxes you pay by decreasing your taxable income. We describe two of them here.
IRA Distribution
If you are someone who is required to withdraw a mandatory distribution from your IRA account each year, by giving all or part of that distribution to the BA (or other qualifying charity) you will not be taxed on the amount of the distribution. There are certain procedures that must be followed. Please check with the investment firm or bank that manages your IRA account.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities
Another way to give to the BA, and possibly reduce your taxes is to give a gift of appreciated stock. By doing this, you will not be required to pay taxes on the increased value of the stock.
