ACT FAST! Did you know?

The Charitable IRA Rollover is now enshrined in law.  If you are over 70½  years old, you can transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA to First U. It is a real win-win:

  • You avoid taxes on the amount given.
  • It counts toward your RMD (Required Minimum Distribution).
  • The gift is also tax-free for the Church.

Talk with your tax advisor to see if the IRA rollover provision makes sense for you. If so, we hope you will consider making a gift before the end of the year. It could be to

  • Complete your 2016-2017 financial commitment,
  • Prepay all or part of your planned 2017-2018 financial commitment, or
  • Make a contribution to our endowment, The Heritage Fund, that insures the continuing viability of the church

The office can provide simple instructions for making this happen.
