The Power of Philanthropy

Make the Most of Tax Law Changes

This year brings changes to the tax laws, including new income tax brackets, increases to the standard deductions, estate tax reform, and a change to the adjusted gross income limit on cash contributions. As you look ahead, consider that certain gift types are appealing given the reform and economic climate:

  • IRA charitable rollover
  • Appreciated stocks
  • Retirement plan assets

For questions on the changes and how they might affect your situation, contact Development Officers Bill Robb (320-589-6387 or billrobb@morris.umn.edu) or Erin Christensen (320-589-6067 or erinc@morris.umn.edu) today!
