Qualified Charitable Distributions

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) are a unique tax strategy that allows people age 701/2 and older to reduce their taxable income by making a gift directly from their IRA with no federal income tax consequences.


  • Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to Early Connections
  • Satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year
  • Reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions
  • Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts
  • Help further the work and mission of Early Connections

How it Works

  • Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift directly from your IRA to us.
  • Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to Early Connections to help continue our important work.
  • Please note that QCD gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction. However reducing your AGI may provide a better tax benefit
