The IRA Charitable Rollover is NOW PERMANENT

It’s not too soon to use your IRA to make a gift to your Jewish Community Foundation to benefit causes you care about—forever! Take advantage of this opportunity every year to bring life-changing programs and services to people in Central Pennsylvania, Israel and around the world.

On December 18, 2015, Congress passed the IRA Charitable Rollover into permanent law. If you are 70 1/2 or older, you can transfer up to $100,000 (or $200,000 if married filing jointly) directly from your pre-tax IRA assets each year to support the causes you are passionate about and that reflect your Jewish values.

There are many opportunities for you to take advantage of the new IRA Charitable Rollover:

- Create a permanent fund through the Foundation to support causes meaningful to you forever
- Make a designated gift to your synagogue or agency through the Foundation
- Secure your Annual Campaign gifts to those causes that are dear to you
- Pre-pay multiple years of giving
- Establish a Lion of Judah or Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment

To identify the ideal giving opportunity for you, please contact Paulette Keifer, Executive Director at 1-717-409-8220 or email .
