Benefits of a qualified charitable distribution

  • Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $105,000 from your IRA to Wake Forest
  • Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts

How a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) gift works

  1. Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA to us.
  2. Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to our organization to help continue our important work.
  3. Please note that QCD gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction.
  4. Please contact us if you wish for your gift to be used for a specific purpose.
