Discover the Benefits of a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)
Reduce Your Taxable Income
When you take funds from your IRA, they count as taxable income. But if you transfer them directly to charity, you reduce your taxable income while satisfying your RMD.
Fulfill Your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)
After you turn 73, you must distribute funds from your IRA. If you do not distribute the required minimum, you may be penalized. However, a QCD allows a transfer up to $100,000 per individual or $200,000 per couple to satisfy your RMD.
Open a World of Opportunity for Future Georgia State Students
When you make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA to Georgia State University Foundation, you provide all Panthers an outstanding education and exceptional support.
“I’ve spent my life in higher education, and I think it’s critically important,” Pate says. “As a society, we all benefit from having educated people in all fields and professions.”
—James L. Pate, QCD Donor
