The greater MAA Fund is an important source for annual unrestricted funding for organizational priorities. In the year ahead, your contributions will help the MAA run signature programs like the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC), which nurtures budding mathematicians in middle through high school; Project NExT, which mentors early career Ph.D.'s; and a host of professional development activities for educators ranging from the PREP program to the lectures, workshops, and the mini and short courses offered at the annual meetings. In addition, the MAA will continue an active public policy agenda concerning federal support for policies affecting mathematics education and research, curriculum review, public lectures, and support for online services such as WeBWorK and the MathDL digital library.
Good News! Charitable IRA Deduction Extended for 2013
Under legislation approved in late 2012, donors age 70 ½ or older are eligible to transfer up to $100,000 directly from their IRAs to the MAA as a gift, without having to pay income taxes on the money. The extension applies to qualified charitable distributions made through January 1, 2014.
If you are interested in making a contribution through your IRA, you should consult your attorney and/or financial advisor regarding the implications before considering a gift using retirement funds.
