  • not be included in your taxable income.
  • satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year.
  • reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions.
  • not be subject to charitable gift limitations.
  • provide meaningful support for the University of Michigan.

This gift opportunity ends on December 31, 2014.
