IRA QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTIONS

If you are 70 ½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit United Way of Treasure Valley and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity, such as ours, without having to pay income taxes on the gift.

Why Consider This Gift?

  • You can choose to designate your gift through our Donor Choice Program, meaning you do not have to make separate distributions to give to more than one charitable organization.

  • You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.

  • If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable distribution gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
