What is a QCD?
(Qualified Charitable Distribution)

A QCD is a strategy that can help reduce taxation in the current year while providing a benefit to your charity of choice.

 

Qualified charitable distributions are made directly to the eligible charity from a traditional IRA, inherited IRA, inactive Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) plan, and inactive Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees (SIMPLE) IRAs. (Inactive SEP and SIMPLE IRAs are accounts that no longer receive employer contributions.)

Happy Family

Who can make a QCD?

An individual can contribute up to $100,000 per year in QCDs if they have attained age 70.5 or older.

 

The individual must have an IRA type account to make the CQD.  (traditional, inherited, inactive SEP and inactive SIMPLE IRAs)

 

If you have questions on whether your account is eligible, please reach out to CASA for further guidance.

Does a QCD make
sense for me?

This strategy may be applicable to donors who:

  • Are required to take a minimum distribution from an IRA, but don’t need the funds and would face increased taxes if forced to do so.

  • Would like to reduce the balance in an IRA to lower future required minimum distributions.

  • Would like to make a larger charitable gift than they could if they simply donated cash or other assets.

  • Have identified which charities they want to support immediately with a substantial gift.

Happy Family

If you would like to execute a QCD, follow the steps below:

1. Verify that your account is eligible for the QCD.

2. Contact your financial advisor or custodian to initiate the QCD. (Rules and processes vary across custodians.)

3.​ Provide the custodian/advisor with the information for CASA of Johnson & Wyandotte Counties. Generally, they will require you to provide an address and tax ID number.

  • 6400 Glenwood St., Suite 100, Building 4 Overland Park, KS 66202

  • Tax ID: 48-1088233

4. After being initiated, the custodian will distribute funds from your account directly to CASA, usually via check.

5. Make sure to collect your tax forms and mention this process to your tax preparer to ensure you get credit for your contribution.
