Charitable IRA Rollover

Charitable IRA Rollover (aka Qualified Charitable Distributions)

Donors who are 70 1/2 or older may donation from their IRAs to Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc. This is called a QCD (Qualified Charitable Distribution) and the gift must be made directly from the IRA to Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc. 

Donors who are 73 or older may wish to make a QCD to satisfy their required minimum distribution (RMD), avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000, and reduce taxable income. (Note: The SECURE Act passed on December 20, 2019 raised the age for RMDs from 70 1/2 to 72. The age for RMDs was raised again in 2023 to 73.)

Donors may support their favorite charitable causes with a transfer to any endowment fund or project at Cumberland Community Foundation except a donor advised fund. Donors should contact their IRA plan administrator to request gifts to be made directly from the IRA to Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc. as an addition to the fund or project of their choice.

We are available to help donors create their charitable legacy by donating from their IRA.  Call (910)483-4449 x103 Mary Holmes or email
