- An individual may transfer up to a total of $105,000 per year and a married couple may give up to $210,000 to all organizations.
- Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to World Animal Protection.
- Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to World Animal Protection so it does not count as income for the year.
- If you are 73 and older, the transfer of funds counts towards your annual Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA.
