Give qualified charitable distributions from an IRA

Eligible owners of traditional IRAs, age 70½ and up, can make qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) up to $100,000 ($200,000 for married qualified couples) this year, without having to pay federal income tax on the distributions - even if you do not itemize deductions. For those age 72 and up with required minimum distributions (RMDs), QCDs may also be used to satisfy all or part of your RMD. Consult your tax advisor, see the IRS FAQ, and contact your IRA provider to plan your qualified charitable IRA distributions directly from your IRA to Donate Life Northwest. To complete the qualified charitable distribution forms with your IRA provider, share:

Giving appreciated stock, bonds or mutual funds you have held for more than a year can eliminate associated capital gains tax exposure. This can be a very smart way to give, even if you do not itemize your deductions. If you do itemize, you may also be able to take a deduction on the full fair market value of your contribution, for even more tax savings.  Even with stocks you want to keep in your portfolio, contributing appreciated shares and buying to replace those shares can strategically reset your cost basis. There are some exceptions and limits, so talk to your advisor and check out IRS publication 526.  We do not receive automatic notice of stock gifts, nor can our broker give us contributor names. So, please contact Alexis@donatelifenw.org 503.494.2289 to let us know to watch for your gift and issue your receipt for tax purposes. 

Other ways to give

Please see the menu at left for bequests and other planned giving (including Charitable Gift Annuities - the gift that truly pays you back), car or other vehicle contributions, DIY fundraising, Donate Life Northwest fundraising events, and other ways to do your part to sustain and grow the lifesaving programs of your Donate Life Northwest community.
