Other Ways You Can Support OLLI-USF

Roll Over Your IRA for Good!

An IRA charitable rollover gift can benefit both you and OLLI-USF! By taking a distribution from your IRA this year, you will likely pay more in taxes and may even reach a higher tax bracket. Rolling over part of your IRA's "required minimum distribution" or "RMD" to USF to benefit OLLI can help reduce your tax bill while supporting our cause. Contact your IRA administrator to get started with your gift. While you will not receive an income tax deduction, you will not pay taxes on any distributions made to USF. 

Please inform us of your plans so we can use your gift for the programs that mean most to you. 

Questions about gift planning? Visit the USF Foundation's Planned Giving site, email Planned_Giving@usf.edu or call 813-974-8761.
