How a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) Works
*If you are 72 years old or older, your QCD can count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD)!
Discover the Benefits of a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)
REDUCE YOUR TAXABLE INCOME
When you take funds from your IRA, they count as taxable income. But if you transfer them directly to charity, you reduce your taxable income while satisfying your RMD.
FULFILL YOUR REQUIRED MINIMUM DISTRIBUTION (RMD)
After you turn 72, you must distribute funds from your IRA. If you do not distribute the required minimum, you may be penalized, but a QCD allows a transfer up to $100,000 per individual or $200,000 per couple to satisfy your RMD.
HELP A CHILD, FAMILY AND COMMUNITY OUT OF HUNGER AND POVERTY
When you transfer IRA funds to Heifer Foundation, you empower men, women and children with tools to sustain themselves and overcome poverty.
