Wire Transfer or Securities

Individual Retirement Account

For individuals aged 70 1⁄2 or older, the IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution is a great way to support Southwestern Law School. If you are required to make annual withdrawals from your IRA, these otherwise taxable distributions can satisfy your annual Required Minimum Distribution and exclude the funds from your taxable income. This can be especially beneficial if you do not itemize and take the standard deduction. To initiate the transfer, please contact your IRA administrator.

Planned Giving

There are a variety of ways to give planned gifts. Please visit www.giftplanning.swlaw.edu for more information. To learn more contact Jeff Poltorak, Vice President of Institutional Advancement, at jpoltorak@swlaw.edu or by calling 213-738-6814.
