If you are 70 and l/2 or older you can make a contribution to BUMC from your IRA without paying taxes on the amount withdrawn. You cannot write a check directly but must ask the custodian of the IRA account to do this and send it to BUMC. You can designate where you want the funds to go – General Account, Capital Campaign Fund, Endowment, etc. or a percentage to each.
Talk with your tax preparer and IRA administrator.
