QDC/IRA Giving

What is a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)?

A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a tax-efficient way for donors over the age of 70 ½ to make a gift directly from their IRA (other than a SEP or SIMPLE IRA) to a qualified charitable organization, such as The Core Collective at Saint Vincent. The benefits of making a QCD include lowering your taxable income and satisfying your Required Minimum Distribution, or RMD, for the year. If you are required to take a minimum distribution form your IRA, but do not need it for daily expenses, QCDs may be right for you! Speak with your tax advisor for more information pertaining to your situation.

Visit IRS.Gov to learn more about QCDS.

Interested in making a QCD to The Core Collective? Contact Chief Development Officer, Gloria Ratliff, at 636-435-7299 or via email at gratliff@theccstl.org
