Your rollover gifts may be counted towards your minimum distribution requirement from your IRA and is a tax-exempt distribution from your IRA. Your gift is tax-neutral on your federal tax bill – it will not be included in your income, but neither will it be deductible. A rollover gift is preferable to withdrawing cash from your IRA, paying tax on it, donating it to a public charity such as Family & Children’s Place and receiving a federal charitable deduction limited to no more than 50 percent of your contribution base, i.e., usually adjusted gross income.
