As a member of Telfair Museums, you support not only the world-class exhibitions and historical storytelling at our three sites, but also the education and outreach programming that changes thousands of lives here in Savannah every year, from children to seniors.
Did you know that more than 26 percent of children Telfair serves live in poverty and that two-thirds are classified as economically disadvantaged in some way? As the calendar turns to the season of giving, we thank you for your support and ask if you would consider making an additional individual donation to empower important programs like our free tours for area youth, art classes for veterans and individuals with physical challenges, and workshops at senior centers. Even a small gift can make a big impact in the life of one of our Savannah neighbors. For more information, email Deputy Director Molly Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 912.790.8865.
Give to Telfair Tax-Free from Your IRA
Did you know federal law allows tax-free charitable contributions up to $100,000 directly from your IRA? To make a tax-free charitable contribution, you must meet the following requirements:
- The IRA owner must be 70 ½ or older.
- Contributions must be made by Dec. 31 each year.
- Contributions must be transferred directly from the IRA to the charity.
- Making a qualified charitable contribution from your IRA has two main advantages over standard giving: A qualified contribution counts toward satisfying your required minimum distribution for the tax year, and the distribution is excluded from the taxpayer’s income, meaning you don’t need to itemize your taxes in order to contribute.
