Kids Above All recently began accepting planned giving contributions through a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), which saves on income taxes.
What is a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)? Individuals who have an IRA may be required to withdraw a minimum distribution. The distribution counts as taxable income. However, a portion of it can be shared as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) – transferring a given amount from your IRA directly to a charitable organization such as Kids Above All. This reduces your taxable income, satisfies your required minimum distribution, and makes a difference in the lives of our students.
Who qualifies? Individuals who were 70½ or older at the end of 2019.
How much can I donate? The maximum amount you can donate is $100,000 per IRA owner or $200,000 per couple per year.
If a current IRA rollover is not possible for you, please consider making Kids Above All the beneficiary of your retirement fund. Please consult with your tax advisor to determine if a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA is right for you and share any questions with Liz Teague, Director of Grants, at email@example.com.
