About Qualified Charitable Distributions

A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a tax-efficient way for individuals who are age 70 ½ or older to make gifts directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

QCDs can count towards satisfying an individual’s Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the year, which is the minimum amount that an individual must withdraw from their IRA each year once they reach age 73.

How it works

  1. Using this form, provide your contact information and donation details, including financial institution and gift amount (up to $105,000).
  2. Download, complete, and submit your forms to your financial institution using the instructions provided.
  3. Once your financial institution receives the forms, the funds are usually transferred to us in about 5-10 business days.
  4. Enjoy the benefit of a tax-free distribution from your IRA, contributing towards your Required Minimum Distribution and potentially reducing tax liability.
