How a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) works

70 1/2 or older

You are at least 70½ years old with IRA funds you no longer need.

70 1/2 or older

You make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your IRA.

70 1/2 or older

Your QCD goes directly to charity, supporting a cause you care about.

*If you are 72 years old or older, your QCD can count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD)!

You can also support our mission for years to come. Simply name Plan International USA as a beneficiary of your IRA account, and the remaining assets (or a portion) of the account will be distributed to help us change lives.

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 72, you must distribute funds from your IRA. If you do not distribute the required minimum, you may be penalized, but a QCD allows a transfer up to $100,000 per individual or $200,000 per couple to satisfy your RMD.

Create a more equitable world

When you make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA to Plan International USA, you will help us acheive gender equality for future generations.
