A retirement plan gift is easy to make and may be the most tax-efficient gift you can make to a charity. Since most individuals have contributed to retirement plans on a tax-deferred basis (meaning taxes have been postponed), retirement plan income is taxed at your marginal rate (federal and state).
You can avoid the two-fold income and estate taxation on retirement plan assets by gifting. Please consult with your financial advisors for the potential savings this technique might provide to you.
