Gifts of Retirement Assets

print this page email this page

Your retirement account may provide valuable gift opportunities for you and for Tufts.

Beneficiary Designations

Retirement plans (such as IRAs, 401(k)s, and other qualified plans) provide a very simple way to make a future charitable gift. On your plan's beneficiary designation form, you simply indicate the amount or percentage you would like to leave to Tufts.

Charitable IRA Rollover

The Charitable IRA Rollover allows individuals 70 and older to make a current gift of up to $100,000 from their IRAs without counting it as taxable income. Your contribution to Tufts can be directed towards the annual fund or another area that is particularly meaningful to you, such as scholarship, faculty support, or research.
