Qualified Charitable Distribution

If you are 70½ or older, you are able to make a contribution directly from your individual retirement account (IRA) to support the organizations your care about most. 

Through an IRA Rollover (also known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution), you may be able to fulfill your required minimum distribution, avoid paying higher income tax, and support the work of the Coastal Conservation League. 

Benefits of an IRA Rollover (QCD): 

  • Avoids taxes on transfers up to $100,000 from an IRA 
  • May satisfy some or all of the donor’s required minimum distribution 
  • Reduce your taxable income 


To make a gift through your IRA, please contact your administrator or financial advisor. We have provided suggested language below.
