When is an IRA distribution not an IRA distribution?

When you make a qualifying gift to a charitable organization like Widener!

Donors above 70 1/2 are able to make gifts directly from their IRA that bypass the required minimum distribution. Charitable distribution gifts can be a tax-wise, and easy, way to make the kind of impact at Widener that you never thought possible.
