FreeWill + Episcopal Charities

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.


We have a new online tool that helps you make a QCD online. This tool doesn’t take any personal information like account or social security numbers. Click the button below to access this tool.

Contact Elizabeth Starling, Director of Development at or 212.932.7376 if you have any questions about QCDs.
