Gifts from IRA
If you are at least 70½ years old, you can use your individual retirement account (IRA) to make a gift to the Ojai Music Festival—up to $100,000 per year. Your gift, which must be transferred directly from your IRA to the Ojai Music Festival, counts toward your required minimum distribution and can be excluded from your federal and California state taxable income (as opposed to treating it as a charitable income tax deduction). Please check with your financial advisor to determine how a charitable IRA rollover gift will impact you.
To initiate a transfer, contact your IRA administrator. To ensure proper crediting at the Festival, you will also need to notify the Ojai Music Festival. Downloadable sample letters are provided below for your convenience. For more information, please contact Anna Wagner, Director of Development at 805.646.3178, [email protected].
