Contribute your IRAto Make a Difference

If you are 70½ or older, you have a unique opportunity to make a direct contribution from your traditional or Roth IRA to Road Dogs and Rescue that saves lives TODAY while also generating tax benefits. This is called a charitable IRA rollover and is sometimes also called a qualified charitable distribution (QCD for short).

  1.  Give any amount up to a maximum of $100,000 per year.
  2.  Your contribution does NOT generate taxable income; lowering your income may reduce your Medicare premiums and Social Security income tax.
  3. Your contribution does not generate a tax deduction and does not require that you itemize your taxes (e.g., you can take the standard income tax deduction but still use a charitable IRA rollover for giving).
  4.  Your charitable rollover can satisfy all or part of the minimum required distribution.

Speak to your IRA administrator and/or your financial advisor for further guidance.
