Donations of appreciated stock are an especially smart way to give, providing you with a charitable deduction and eliminating your capital gains tax. This can provide you with even more benefits than donating cash.

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) are funds from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) that can be donated to a nonprofit organization without first recognizing it as income. QCDs are also sometimes referred to as IRA Charitable Rollovers. If you are above the age of 70.5 and have a Traditional IRA, you are eligible to make a QCD.

QCDs reduce your taxable income. Normally, funds withdrawn from your Traditional IRA count towards your annual income, increasing your tax burden and possibly moving you into a higher tax bracket. QCDs are an exception to this rule—funds go directly from your IRA to a charitable organization without counting towards your annual income.

QCDs satisfy Required Minimum Distributions. Required minimum distributions are amounts that you must withdraw annually from your Traditional IRA once you reach a certain age. Making a QCD gift can meet the RMD requirement and avoid penalties.

Contact your IRA administrator to make a gift from your IRA to CPLC, and contact us at give@cplc.org to let us know if you have done so.

This flexible gift enables you to leave a legacy without using up cash or other assets designated for your heirs, and can provide an estate tax deduction.
