Qualified Charitable Distributions
If you are age 70 ½ or older, you can make a tax-free donation to a qualified charity such as Pocono Mountains United Way directly from your IRA. Using what’s called a qualified charitable distribution (QCD), you can donate all or a portion of your required minimum distributions (RMDs), up to $100,000 a year, directly to charity. While you don’t get a write-off for your gift, you also don’t owe taxes on that retirement-account distribution. This type of gifting during your lifetime can be an excellent way to fulfill your personal financial objectives while getting to participate in United Way’s impact today. To initiate a QCD, please click here.
A donor advised fund (DAF), which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to United Way and other qualified charities. You can make an outright gift, recurring grants OR name us as a beneficiary of the remainder in your donor-advised fund.
TCB Promotions and Pocono Mountains United Way have partnered to offer the following promotion, Gift Every Giver.
Beginning March 1st, individuals that sign up to be a recurring monthly donor will be offered a FREE gift from TCB Promotions. Donate today and select monthly to make a lasting impact.
