70.5+ years of age? Alternatively Consider a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) for your Scholarship Donation

A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from an IRA to a qualified charity. There are three distinct benefits from using this method:

  • The distribution counts toward meeting the annual required minimum distribution (RMD).
  • The amount is excluded from your taxable income.
  • May reduce other deductions and credits e.g. taxable Social Security benefits or Medicare surtax.

QCD Ground Rules:

  • Must be 70.5 years old in year of distribution.
  • Funds must come directly from IRA custodian.
  • Transfer must be made payable to the charity, in this case, the "Greenbrier Valley Community Foundation – GMS Leadership Scholarship Fund."
