Your IRA Charitable Rollover Can Now Benefit the Symphony!
San Antonio Symphony

January, 2013


Your IRA Qualified Charitable Rollover Can Now Benefit the Symphony!

On January 2, 2013, as part of legislation to resolve the “fiscal cliff,” Congress reinstated the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Qualified Charitable Rollover provision, which allows individuals aged 70 ½ or older to make charitable donations directly from their IRA without recognizing income. The prior law expired on December 31, 2011, but Congress just reinstated it retroactively for 2012 and extended it for all of 2013.

  • If you are aged 70 ½ or older, you can make a charitable donation directly from your IRA to the San Antonio Symphony between now and February 1, 2013, and you may choose to have it treated as a Qualified Charitable Rollover for 2012.
  • Also, if you received a distribution from your IRA during the month of December, 2012, you can donate any portion of the proceeds in cash to the San Antonio Symphony, and that portion of your IRA distribution will also be treated as a Qualified Charitable Rollover for 2012.
  • To do so, just send your check to the San Antonio Symphony, with instructions that the funds were initially distributed to you in December 2012 from your IRA account.
  • Finally, the Qualified Charitable Rollover provision is in effect for all of 2013, so your San Antonio Symphony encourages you to consider taking advantage of this highly beneficial tax rule, and use your IRA to help support your Symphony in its mission to change lives in our community through music.

If you made a charitable distribution directly from your IRA to the Symphony in 2012, you should have received a letter stating that it was provisionally accepted by the San Antonio Symphony in accord with the Qualified Charitable Rollover rules. If you made such a donation but did not receive this letter, please contact Margaret Barron, Vice President of Development at 210-554-1050, or at

Thank you very much for your continued generosity and support of your San Antonio Symphony!
