IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution
A popular, tax-smart option for giving is through a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). If you are 70½ or older, an IRA charitable rollover is a way you can help continue our work while also gaining these benefits:
- Pay for your service program contribution
- Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to our organization
- Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts
- Help children around the world reach their full potential
Important notes and highlights:
- While you are eligible to make this gift starting at 70½, when you turn 72 you must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA, and a QCD will count towards that RMD.
- The distribution must be made from a traditional or Roth IRA.
- Donors must ask their plan administrator to make a direct transfer of funds to a qualified public charity. It is important not to withdraw funds before making a gift.
- Distributions made under this law can be used to satisfy the donor’s required minimum distribution (RMD). However, qualified charitable distributions are not limited to the donor’s RMD.
- Donors can choose to exclude the distribution from income on their federal tax return. If they do, they will not receive a charitable income tax deduction.
To make a gift to Global Volunteers or pay for your service program from an IRA, contact your IRA plan administrator and request a direct qualified charitable distribution from the IRA account to Global Volunteers, a 501(c)(3) organization. Our Tax ID number is 36-3352680.
