Qualified Charitable Distributions and Required Minimum Distributions
For those aged 70 1⁄2 and older, making tax-favorable charitable gifts from IRA accounts is possible. This is known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD).
A total of up to $100,000 per year can be transferred directly from IRAs to a qualified charity, such as The Water’s Edge, free from federal income tax. There may also be state income tax savings.
Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) are the minimum amounts you must withdraw from your retirement accounts each year. You generally must start taking withdrawals from your traditional IRA, SEP IRA, SIMPLE IRA, and retirement plan accounts when you reach age 72.
A QCD can help meet your RMD requirement. By giving all or part of your RMD, you can practice generosity and benefit from substantial tax savings. Many of our donors in this age group are giving from their RMD. To donate from an IRA, it is important to donate directly from the IRA to the church.
