Here is a tax-smart way to make an impact to VNA & Hospice Foundation using your traditional or Roth IRA. The IRA charitable rollover (also called the Qualified Charitable Distribution, or QCD) is a great way to make a tax-free gift to VNA & Hospice Foundation and satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). If you are not required to take an RMD but no longer itemize your deductions, then a QCD may be right for you as well.

How Do I Qualify?

The IRA charitable rollover (QCD) offers multiple benefits for making gifts from your traditional or Roth IRA.

  • You must be 70 ½ years or older at the time of the gift.
  • Gifts must come from a traditional IRA or Roth IRA account.
  • Donors can make a gift of up to $100,000 per year.

Benefits of an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift

  • If you don’t itemize deductions and are not yet required to take your RMD, a QCD offers all of the benefits of an itemized income tax charitable deduction
  • If you are age 72 or older and must take your RMD, a QCD can satisfy your RMD without increasing your income taxes.
  • You may direct your gift to a program or area of your choice. 
  • It is a wonderful way to create an immediate impact on VNA & Hospice Foundation.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The law states that a qualified charity is a public charity, but not a supporting organization. Since Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice Foundation, Inc. is a public charity, but also a supporting organization, it does not qualify to be a beneficiary of a charitable IRA rollover gift. Please have your IRA Charitable Distribution made directly to Visiting Nurse Association of the Treasure Coast, Inc., EIN 59-2664912, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, or have your IRA Administrator contact us for transfer information.
