Retirement Account Required Minimum Distribution

If you are 70.5 or older and you have a traditional IRA, you are eligible to make a tax-free gift from your IRA to the Women’s Foundation of California – up to $100,000 per taxpayer, per year. Donors do not have to take distributions out of their IRAs until they are 72, but can still make annual tax-free gifts, known as Qualified Charitable Distributions, or QCDs.

Use our online tool to:

  • Create your QCD in support of the Women’s Foundation of California
  • Request a tax acknowledgment letter for a QCD you’ve already made
  • Download the forms you need if you’d prefer to finalize your QCD offline
  • Learn more about giving from your IRA to see if it’s right for you!

If you have any further questions, please contact Stephanie Green.
