Galen Lita Norsworthy Ira Charitable Rollover

“We wanted to do something for Joni and Friends and would rather the money go to ministry rather than to taxes so we gave a gift through our IRA. It’s an easy way to give and because it reduced our taxes, we were able to make a larger gift than we would otherwise have been able to make.”

—Galen and Lita Norsworthy

Benefits of an IRA Rollover Gift?

Benefit 1

Use all or a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) to make a gift to Joni and Friends and you don’t pay income taxes on the amount you donate.

Benefit 2

You can donate up to a total of $100,000 each year ($200,000 for married couples) and exclude the gift from your taxable income.*

Benefit 3

Increase your ministry impact to advance the Gospel and transform lives within the disability community, worldwide.

Benefit 4

Designate your gift to your favorite ministry program at Joni and Friends, including pledge payments and more.

Your charitable IRA rollover gift must go directly to Joni and Friends and not  any donor advised funds, family foundations or other supporting foundations.

We would greatly appreciate being informed of your generosity so that we can be prepared to provide a proper and timely IRS acknowledgment.
