Ways To Give

IRA Distributions

Helping the HUNGRY, Homeless and Hurting

After you reach 70½, you are required by the Internal Revenue Service to begin withdrawing money from your individual retirement account. This requirement offers a good opportunity to give tax-free dollars to your favorite charity or church. To learn more contact Elizabeth Hefner, Director of Advancement, (215) 922-6400 x1005 or

What is a qualified charitable distribution (QCD)?

It’s an IRA withdrawal when you are 70½ or older that would normally be taxable, but becomes tax-free when it is paid directly to a qualified charitable organization.

Is there a dollar limit?

Individuals may give up to the maximum amount of $100,000 each year. Married individuals filing a joint tax return could each qualify for an income exclusion up to $100,000, and then could give away $200,000 jointly.

Can a qualified charitable distribution count as my required minimum distribution?

Yes. You can direct the entire required minimum distribution to be transferred to a qualified charity and
it will count toward meeting your required minimum distribution for that tax year.
