The Charitable IRA Rollover is back!

You have until December 31st to once again make a tax-free gift from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) directly to Idaho Public Television.

It's a smart way to not only enjoy tax savings but also support the value of public television.

Here's How It Works:

  • You must be 70½ or older to make an IRA rollover gift to a public charity, like IdahoPTV.
  • You can give up to $100,000 from your Traditional or Roth IRA.

Instruct your plan administrator to send a specific dollar amount directly to Idaho Public Television. Your administrator can send the gift by check or electronic transfer.

You can email Shane at for a sample letter of instruction. Please let us know of your charitable intentions so we can ensure your gift is processed in an accurate and timely manner.

Benefits to You:

  • Each dollar of your donation will count towards your required minimum distribution for 2015.
  • You can exclude up to $100,000 of this gift from your Federal gross income - resulting in lower taxable income and possible tax savings
  • You will have the personal satisfaction of doing more for our community than you originally thought possible.

Tip: This tax savings is especially valuable to donors who are non-itemizers and donors who have reached their limit on itemized charitable deductions.

Act now!

Your gift must be completed by December 31st in order to receive the maximum benefits for 2015.

Please consult with your financial advisor about this win-win opportunity.
