If you are 70½ or older and have an IRA, you are already qualified!
How a qualified charitable distribution works
You are at least 70½ years old with IRA funds you no longer need.
You make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA.
Your QCD goes directly to charity, supporting a cause you care about.
*If you are 73 years old or older, your QCD can count toward your required minimum distribution!
Did you know?
You can also support our vision 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.
Sample beneficiary designation
Legal name: Plan International USA
Address: 235 Promenade St, Suite 600
Providence, RI 02908
Federal Tax ID number: 13-5661832
Discover the benefits of a qualified charitable distribution
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
After you turn 73, 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 $105,000 per individual or $210,000 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 to achieve gender equality for future generations.
“I was surprised by how easy it was to make a gift from my IRA to Plan International USA. With a QCD I can use funds that I no longer need to support an amazing cause.”
— Kathleen Phillips, Plan USA Donor
