Charitable IRA Rollover

The Charitable IRA Rollover (or sometimes referred to as Qualified Charitable Deductions) provides taxpayers 70 ½ or older with a mechanism for transferring their annual Required Minimum Distributions (RMD’s) directly to charitable organizations.

How it Works

Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA to Zoo Miami Foundation.

Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to our organization to help continue our important work.

Please contact us if you wish for your gift to be used for a specific purpose.


Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to our organization.

Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts.

Please make sure to let us know if we are included in your legacy planning, so we may say “Thank You” by reaching out to William “Bill” Moore, President and CEO, at 305.255.5551 or
