You may be able to make a gift to the Northside Achievement Zone with a rollover from your Individual Retirement Account and take advantage of tax savings.

The current law extends the charitable IRA rollover provision indefinitely with no expiration date, which allows individuals to make qualifying gifts every tax year. If you supported the Northside Achievement Zone in this way last year, you may do so again. 

Under the ‘Protecting Americans From Tax Hikes Act,’ Americans who meet the guidelines below may give IRA funds without paying federal income tax. This is known as a rollover or qualified charitable distribution.


  • You must be 70½ or older.
  • You may distribute any amount up to $100,000 in a calendar year to charity, as long as it is completed by December 31 of the year you intend to make the charitable rollover.
  • Your IRA administrator must make the rollover directly to NAZ

The Northside Achievement Zone recommends consulting with your tax advisor to discuss your particular situation, including any impact of your state's tax laws. All IRA charitable rollovers are restricted from receiving benefits, including gala tickets.
