You may recall a recent article I wrote regarding donors contributing through their IRA and how it can help your year-end drive.
Here is an example of one charitable organization, The Fellowship of Reconciliation, putting this advice to practice by sending their donors a short, simple e-mail:
Did you know that you can make a charitable contribution through your Roth IRA or traditional IRA?
That’s right, and if you’re 70.5 or older, there are some added tax benefits to making your “Qualified Charitable Distribution” in this way.
Specifically, current tax law allows you to fulfill your required minimum distribution while bypassing your gross income. That’s even better than the benefits of making a standard charitable contribution.
Contact your financial adviser today and request that a “Qualified Charitable Distribution be made directly to the charity of your choice.
If You Have Questions:
Please give me a call at (917) – 555- 5555 or send me an e-mail.
In Peace & Justice,
Fellowship of Reconciliation
