Camp Walter Scott exists today in part because of the generosity of individuals. In the case of retirement funds, those with IRAs and over the age of 70 and 1/2 can donate up to $100,000 from their IRA directly to a charity and avoid paying income taxes on the distribution.

In a similar fashion, when planning estates, Camp Walter Scott can be named as a beneficiary which will not incur taxes on the donated assets. For both retirement and estate donations, check out more detailed information here.

Please note you should always consult with a financial professional when making distributions from your retirement accounts. Laws are subject to change and this information is not legal advice, but an option to consider when donating.
