A Great Way to Invest in the Future of St. John's
A Qualified Charitable Distribution ("QCD") is a tax efficient way to make charitable contributions. A QCD is a direct transfer from your IRA to a charity (e.g., St. John's UMC). It is only available to IRA owners and IRA beneficiaries who are age 70 ½ or older. The amount contributed counts toward any Required Minimum Distribution ("RMD") and will be excluded from your income, creating an "effective" tax deduction that is in addition to your standard deduction. Your IRA custodian is an excellent resource to explain and create a QCD.
If you have planned on recognizing St. John’s in your charitable legacy through your will or other planned gift, please let us know. We will make sure your wishes are carried out.
