Qualified Charitable Distribution (IRA Rollover)

If you are age 70½ or older, an IRA charitable rollover is a simple way to reduce your tax liability and help us fulfill our work as community theaters. 

Benefits of an IRA charitable rollover
•    Avoid taxes on transfers from your IRA by designating it to The Picture

•    If you are age 70½ or older, IRS rules require you to take required minimum
distributions (RMDs) each year from your tax-deferred retirement accounts.  You may satisfy all or part of your RMD for the year with a charitable rollover gift.
•    Reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions.
•    You may make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts.
•    You will help further the work and mission of The Picture House.

How an IRA charitable rollover gift works
1.    Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA to The Picture House Regional Film Center.
2.    Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to The Picture House to help continue our important work.
3.    Please note that IRA charitable rollover gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction. It saves on your income taxes because the gift comes from untaxed funds not included in your annual income, as an RMD would be.

Please contact Bob DeMicco at 914-299-6761 or at if you wish for your gift to be used for a specific purpose or have any other questions.
