IRA Charitable Rollovers
The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 has extended the IRA Charitable Rollover provision through December 31, 2013, allowing individuals 70 1/2 and older to donate up to $100,000 via direct transfer from their IRAs to eligible charities. 

However, while the Trust is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, it is additionally classified as a 509(a)(3) Supporting Organization. 509(a)(3) Supporting Organizations are not eligible for direct "qualified charitable distributions" from an IRA.  IRA holders may alternately consider taking a distribution, if eligible, from their IRA, pay taxes on that withdrawal, use the proceeds to make a donation, and then claim an income tax charitable deduction. 

As the Trust cannot offer tax or legal advice, donors are advised to consult their IRA custodian and/or tax advisor about their specific situation.

Giving Stock/Equities
Donating long-term appreciated securities can provide a tax advantage for the donor and an important gift for the Partnership Trust.

Matching Gifts
Many companies underwrite generous programs to match their employees' charitable giving. Please check with your Human Resources office for details on how to maximize your gift.

Planned Gifts
You may provide for the future of the Archives Partnership Trust through a bequest. Information on various types of bequests and suggestions of language for adding a codicil to your present will are included.
