Year-End Investments in Conservation

People that are age 70 ½ or older are required to take a distribution from their IRA, which is then treated as taxable income.   The roll-over provision allows them to donate a portion of the distribution—up to $100,000—to qualified non-profits.  The donated portion will not be treated as income and is therefore not subject to income tax.  Some of the rules include:

  •  Eligible Retirement Accounts. Distributions can only be made from IRA’s or Roth IRAs. Donations from 403(b), 401(k), pension and other retirement plans are not eligible for the tax-free treatment. 
  • Directly to the Charity. Distributions must be made directly from the IRA to the public charity.

 Consult your qualified tax adviser for full details and advice on how to complete one of these contributions. 

Gifts of stock or other appreciated assets are other ways to support conservation.  Please contact the Six Rivers office for delivery details.  

Also, please remember us when holiday gifting on behalf of your clients.

And don't forget that a plain ole' cash/check/charge donation helps the year end tax tally as well! Visit our store to donate online.

Protect the Nature Near You!

Six Rivers Land Conservancy is a non-profit conservation organization made up of members, donors and volunteers who believe it is important to sustain the quality and character of the natural resources around us. We recognize and understand the value of an inviting landscape and a strong and vibrant natural resource base in our communities; it makes them attractive and healthy places to live and attracts people and institutions that create prosperity.

For the most part our work is with private landowners who share these values for our natural heritage and choose to act on them in measurable, permanent ways. Though we are not a government or regulatory agency, on occasion they may have a role in a project we are involved in.

Our work supports vibrant and healthy economies, communities and natural resources. We invite you to join us as we work to sustain the best qualities of our region.
