IRA Charitable Rollover Program

The IRA Charitable Rollover program allows individuals age 70 1/2 or older to contribute through their IRA, as part of their annual RMD, and not pay income tax on the donated portion of the distribution. Additional info is available

Stock, mutual funds, or other types of securities can be transferred to the College through the Foundation. Significant capital gains taxes savings may be realized by the contributed transfer of assets.

Real Estate
A contribution of real property is a substantial way to establish an endowment or benefit a College program. Significant tax savings may be realized by donating a real estate asset from an estate.

Planned Giving
Naming Ramapo College as a beneficiary of your will, retirement plan or life insurance policy helps secure Ramapo’s future. In 2005, Ramapo launched a Pooled Income Fund and Annuity Program. Please contact the Planned Giving Office to discuss these opportunities in greater detail.

The donation of such goods and services as a subscription to a major periodical to Ramapo’s library, an art collection or a professional service, can help further the programs of the College.

NOTE: The transfer of gifts other than cash should be discussed with the Foundation’s Executive Director in advance to ensure that they are received and applied according to your wishes.
