Making giving from your IRA easy

Donors 70 ½ or older with a traditional IRA are eligible to give a tax-free gift directly from their IRAs called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). These gifts are always tax-free, regardless of whether or not the donor itemizes charitable deductions on their tax return.

Contact Lauren Chung, Interim Director of Operations and Institutional Development at lchung@dioceseny.org or 212.932.7376 if you have any questions about QCDs and how to make distributions from your financial institution.
