James E. Rogers College of Law   
 
December 31, 2014

 

In a matter of hours, we will all say goodbye to 2014 and ring in the Centennial year of Arizona Law.

On this New Year's Eve and embracing our international spirit, allow me to share of some the great destinations visited by our faculty, staff, and alumni in 2014.

I also recommend you watch this fun video of students and staff from across the University -- including a great turnout from the College team -- wishing all of our alumni and friends the best in the coming year.

Don't forget! Today is the last day to make a tax deductible gift for 2014. Make your gift through our simple online portal by clicking here.

Cheers to a New Year!

IRA Charitable Transfers for 2014


For all of our donors 70 and older, you may be able to take advantage of a recent change in legislation and make a charitable gift directly from your IRA before December 31, 2014. Last evening, the Senate passed the Tax Extenders Bill 76-16. The President is expected to sign the bill into law. See this Washington Post article for more information.

The window of opportunity to take advantage of this change is very short; the extension will be retroactive to January 1, 2014, but it will expire on December 31, 2014.

The transfer can count as part of the required minimum withdrawal that most IRA owners 70 and older must take annually.

If you are interested in making a gift from your IRA, please contact Jonelle Vold or 520-621-8430.
