Contrast Ratio 4.5 to 1.

Contrast Checker for Text and Icons

WCAG 2.0 level AA requires a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1 for normal text and 3:1 for large text.  This means that light text can not be used on a white background.

Large text is defined as 14 point (typically 18.66px) and bold or larger, or 18 point (typically 24px) or larger.

WebAIM, a web accessibility solutions company, has a free online contrast checker.  Simply set the foreground and background colors, and the checker will automatically provide a pass/fail grade.
