IRA Gifts

Whatever your age, you can still designate Davidson as the beneficiary of all or part of your IRA at your death, creating an estate tax deduction and avoiding the income tax, which would be payable by a non-charitable beneficiary of the IRA.

This designation can be done by a simple communication with your IRA custodian, probably doesn't involve changing your will, and is a good option if you are considering a bequest to Davidson.

If you plan to make an IRA gift, please contact Gray Dyer '96 at grdyer@davidson.edu or 704-894-2478 and ask your IRA custodian to include your name on the check or accompanying documentation.

We are happy to direct your IRA gift to the The Fund for Davidson, The Davidson Trust, or another giving priority.
