OCMC Announcement - Charitable IRA Rollover - Available Through 2013

by OCMC Announcement (Posted 8/19/2013)

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) is pleased to make information available to you as a steward of all God has entrusted to your care. The current tax law might allow you to fulfill your current pledge or make an offering to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center that would make a significant difference. If you have been blessed to have reached 70 ½ years in age, you may be able to make a tax-free gift of up to $100,000 to the OCMC from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

Details include:

  • Many individuals 70 ½ or older are now able to donate up to $100,000 from an IRA distribution to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) without paying federal income tax on the withdrawal.
  • The distribution (up to $100,000) will count toward satisfying the taxpayer’s minimum required distribution from the IRA.
  • Gifts must be made directly from the IRA to the Orthodox Christian Mission Center by December 31, 2013.
  • The distribution does not generate taxable income or a tax deduction. So even if you do not itemize your tax return, you – and worldwide Orthodox missions – still benefit.
  • Be sure to keep documentation for the donation as you would substantiate any other gift to charity.

Note: The plan must be a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA; it cannot be an employer sponsored plan such as a SIMPLE IRA, a 401(k) or 403(b) plan or a simplified employment pension (“SEP”) plan. Not all states follow this Federal law. Do seek good counsel specific for your state from your tax advisor.

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
