    If you are 70½ or older you may be interested in a planned gift that reduces the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals. An IRA charitable rollover is a way you can support UM while benefiting yourself. Or at any age, designating UM as a beneficiary of your IRA can be a great way to remove highly taxed assets from your estate.
