You can contribute up to $5000 if you are under 50 years of age, $6000 if you are 50 or older. If you are married, you can contribute the same amounts on her behalf to her own IRA. You can contribute these amounts all to your Roth IRA, all to your Traditional IRA, or split them between the two types of IRAs so that the total contribution totals no more than your individual limit.
