Gifts from Your IRA

Interested in gifting your minimum required distribution from your IRA? To do so, the gift must come directly from your traditional IRA to an eligible nonprofit. Contact your IRA administrator and instruct that individual to transfer funds to the charity you designate. Please note:

  • You will need Allegheny’s Tax ID: 25-0965212
  • Let your administrator know that you would like them to include your name on the check and please let us know if you would like to designate your gift to a specific initiative (Annual Fund, scholarship, music department, athletics etc.) Checks often arrive with no donor identification and plan administrators will not give us that information!
  • Gifts must pass through your account by December 31 of each year — please initiate your gifts as soon as possible so as to avoid a year-end bottleneck that may delay their timely arrival.
  • You may contact the Annual Giving Office at to alert the College about the donation. Checks should be made out to Allegheny College and should be mailed to:
    Allegheny College Annual Fund
    520 N Main Street
