You may be looking for a way to make a big difference to help further our mission. If you are 70½ or older, an IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution is a way you can help continue our work and benefit this year.

Benefits of an IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution

  • You can avoid taxes on transfers of up to $105,000 from your IRA to Carolina.
  • Satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year if you are 72 years or older.
  • 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
  • You will help further the work and mission of our organization.

How it works
