Give Through Your IRA

For individuals age 70 1/2 or older, the IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a savvy tax-wise way to support Freestore Foodbank. If you are required to make annual withdrawals from an IRA account, these otherwise taxable distributions can satisfy your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and exclude these funds from your taxable income and maximize your charitable impact.

Up to $100,000 in IRA funds can be counted as QCDs annually, or $200,000 for married couples.

What are the benefits?

  • Transfer tax-free gifts from your IRA directly to Freestore Foodbank
  • Can be applied toward your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)
  • Beneficial for individuals who do not itemize deductions on their income tax
  • Withdrawals not subject to annual charitable deduction limitations
