IRA for 2015 -- with no expiration!

The Tax Relief Extension Act of 2015 reinstated the ability to transfer up to $100,000 tax free from your IRA directly to Colorado College. Below are the rules:

  • You are 70 1/2 or older on the day of the gift;
  • You transfer up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to one or more qualified charities in the tax year;
  • You do not receive any goods or services in exchange for the rollover gift; and
  • You make the gift by December 2016 to qualify for this year's credit.

To wire transfer funds to Colorado College, call (800) 782-6306, option 1, for instructions. Please let us know of any transfer so we can be sure to thank you!

Plan ahead: this legislation has no expiration, so you will be able to make gifts directly from your IRA.

If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Baxter '78, CIMA®, director of gift planning, at or call (800) 782-6306, option 1.

Real Estate

Want to make a big gift to Colorado College without touching your bank account? Consider giving us real estate. Such a generous gift helps support our students and programs for years to come. And a gift of real estate also helps you. When you give us appreciated property you have held longer than one year, you get a federal income tax charitable deduction. You avoid paying capital gains tax. And you no longer have to deal with that property's maintenance costs, property taxes or insurance.

Another benefit: You don't have to hassle with selling the real estate. You can deed the property directly to CC or ask your attorney to add a few sentences in your will or trust agreement. Contact Director of Gift Planning Nancy Baxter to learn more.

Other Types of Gifts

For questions about matching gifts, CC employee payroll deduction, and more, contact Kathleen Bauer at (719) 389-6354 or by e-mail. Colorado College may accept gifts-in-kind of personal property if the items are directly related to the mission of the college. For questions about gifts of personal property, contact Molly Bodnar at (719) 389-6351 or by e-mail. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept gifts made through PayPal or Venmo, or gifts of bitcoin.

ACH Conversion: When sending a check, you authorize Colorado College either to use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction.  For inquiries, please call 719-389-6462.
