MAKE A GIFT FROM YOUR IRA

With the passage of The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, Congress has reinstated the IRA charitable rollover. This means you can make a gift directly to Washington & Jefferson College from your traditional or Roth IRA account.  This legislation allows individuals over the age of 70 ½ to make charitable distributions of up to $100,000 from a traditional or Roth IRA.  

Due to the federal extension, please click here for language that can be used with your IRA Administrator to make a direct charitable distribution to Washington & Jefferson College from an Individual Retirement Account. 

MAKE A SUSTAINING GIFT

This is an easy, affordable way to give.  When completing our secure, Online Giving Form, under Designations, check the box next to "create monthly automatic charges" in the amount you specify.  Each month, that amount will be automatically billed to your card, hassle free.
