You may be looking for a way to make a big difference to help further our mission. If you are 70½ or older you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. An IRA charitable rollover is a way you can help continue our work and benefit this year.

Benefits of an IRA charitable rollover

  • Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to Lebanon Valley College
  • Satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year (if you are subject to RMD)
  • Reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions
  • Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts
  • Help further the work and mission of Lebanon Valley College

How an IRA charitable rollover gift works

  1. Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA to us.
  2. Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to our organization to help continue our important work.
  3. Please note that IRA charitable rollover gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction.
  4. Please contact us if you wish for your gift to be used for a specific purpose.

Many companies will match your gift and some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or your spouse/partner to LVC. For questions, contact your human resources office or contact the Advancement Office at 1-866-LVC-1866 (1-866-582-1866) or development@lvc.edu.

A planned gift can help create a lasting and meaningful impact on students, may help you save on taxes, and in some cases, could increase your income. Learn more about planned giving here or by contacting Joe Martellaro, director of gift planning, at martella@lvc.edu or 717-867-6323.

If you have already arranged a planned gift, please share your plans with LVC and join more than 140 other members of the Miles Rigor Society.

You can designate your gift to a scholarship or research fund, make an unrestricted gift to The Valley Fund, or recommend recurring payments. Another option is to support programs that meet your interests, such as a specific academic department or an athletic team. You can also designate LVC as a beneficiary for your donor-advised fund.

How to recommend a gift to LVC

  • Request a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor.
  • Be sure to use the LVC’s EIN # 23-1352354
  • Indicate whether your gift is unrestricted or designated to a specific cause i.e. the program, fund, or department you are supporting. You can also designate LVC as a beneficiary for your donor-advised fund.
