The Nebraska Community Foundation works with community, organizational and donor-advised affiliated funds serving 250 communities located in 80 counties. NCF and its affiliated funds have reinvested $269 million in Nebraska since 1994.
The Charitable IRA Rollover provision was permanently extended in 2015. This law allows an individual who is 70½ or older to gift up to $100,000 from his or her IRA directly to a qualified charity such as the Nebraska Community Foundation or for the benefit of an Affiliated Fund of NCF without having to recognize the IRA distribution in taxable income.
