Provide your company with UMCOR Tax ID 82-1449602


Congress renewed and made permanent a popular charitable IRA provision in the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015. This provision allows people aged 70½ or older to make direct charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRAs to charities in a total amount up to $100,000. These gifts are free from federal income taxation. In addition, the income tax laws of most states also allow tax-free treatment for these gifts.

Making gifts from IRA funds that would otherwise lead to increased taxes can be a wise choice for many. This is especially true for those who must take required minimum distributions each year.

For more information, check with us, your IRA administrator, or your tax advisor.


The Advance ensures that 100% of every gift reaches its intended mission or ministry through accountable channels you can track online.

All Advance projects are also eligible for Supplementary Gifts through United Methodist Women’s giving channels.
