Planned Giving

Did you know that by making your gift using an IRA charitable rollover (a direct transfer from your account to The Arc of Texas) you will not pay income taxes on that amount which is given as a gift? Since there is no tax deduction available on the transfer, this type of gift can work well even for those who do not itemize their taxes.
