Gifts of Other Assets
Individual Retirement Account Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)
Individuals who are 70½ are permitted to donate up to $100,000 from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) directly to charity. The funds contributed are excluded from gross income and can satisfy a required minimum distribution.
Communicate with your IRA’s custodian (where your IRA is held) that you are interested in making a QCD. Make the request for a QCD in writing. Specify the dollar amount that you wish to contribute. Request the check (or transfer) be made payable to the Thousand Island Park Foundation, Inc.
Note: Funds must be transferred directly from the IRA to the Foundation by the IRA trustee in order to qualify for the tax break. If you withdraw the money from your IRA and later donate it, it won’t qualify as a tax-free qualified charitable distribution.
