An Easy Way To Give to AACLC: Through Your IRA

February 25, 2020

Support the Anne Arundel County Literacy Council with a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from Your IRA

QCDs satisfy the required minimum distribution for donors age 70-½ or older.

What is a qualified charitable distribution?

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a distribution of funds from your IRA (other than a SEP or SIMPLE IRA) directly to a qualified charitable organization, such as the Anne Arundel County Literacy Council. Because the gift goes directly to a charity without passing through your hands, it does not incur income tax. You can make QCDs totaling up to $100,000 each tax year.

Who can make a qualified charitable distribution?

QCDs can be made by anyone age 70½ or older who is required to take minimum withdrawals from their IRA (other than a SEP or SIMPLE IRA). If you are subject to the required minimum distribution this year and do not need some or all of that money for personal use, consider making a QCD. You will satisfy your distribution requirement, not incur any tax obligations, and support the work of the Anne Arundel County Literacy Council all at the same time!
