IRA Charitable Rollover

If you wish to make a gift to the James A. Rhodes State College Foundation directly from your IRA, the EIN for the Foundation is 34-1266573. Working with you, your IRA plan administrator will have your gift directly transferred from your IRA to the James A. Rhodes State College Foundation, 4240 Campus Drive, Lima, OH  45804.

This is a wonderful way for you to avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA; satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year; reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions; and support students and the College. You may also direct your gift as you wish to the scholarship program or a specific scholarship; a program or area of the College; or to the Area of Greatest Need.

Cash Donations

You may write a check or use your credit card. Checks should be made payable to the Rhodes State College Foundation and mailed to 4240 Campus Drive, JJC 175, Lima, OH 45804.
