Other contribution opportunities:

  • New Opportunities for Charitable Gifting From Your IRA: If you are 70 1/2 or older, you can make tax-free, qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) from your IRA accounts directly to the the Zen Center of Syracuse of up to $100,000 per year. And, if you must take required minimum distributions from your IRA (which now must start at age 73), these tax-free QCDs can count towards your RMD amount. Some would prefer not to touch their IRA, as they have other sources of income. But upon reaching the RMD age threshold, they choose to direct some or all of their annual RMD to the Zen Center, without incurring federal income tax liability on the gifted amount.
