  • Giving: Support Our Work

Support Our Work

For more than 140 years, individuals from across the globe have sought care from specialists at the Emory Eye Center. Much of this ongoing care would not be possible without the support of our donors who generously fund pioneering research, the latest technology and specialized services that help people of all ages protect or restore their eyesight and improve the quality of their lives.

With your support, together we can help further the commitment to excellence in patient care, research and teaching, as well as our emerging global outreach program. Gifts to the Emory Eye Center enable us to continue our work with blinding diseases in children, inherited eye disorders, eye conditions due to aging, and much more.

May 2016 | Rollover Anytime:  Congress recently made the IRA charitable rollover permanent. No more waiting until the end of each year to see if Congress extends the law that allows qualified charitable distributions directly from IRAs. IRA charitable rollover gifts can now be made year-round.

If you are 70 or older, you can give up to $100,000 each year directly from your IRA to charities such as Emory.

The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you still benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions. Your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution for the year.

The transfer may be made in addition to any other charitable giving you have planned.
