Ways to Give to EAN

A great way to give a gift to Elders Action Network in 2024

Did you know that your 2024 gift to Elders Action Network can also help satisfy a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for your tax deferred retirement accounts?

How do I turn my RMD into a donation to Elders Action Network?

One way to do this is by making a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian, a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) to Elders Action Network. The QCD can have significant income tax benefits to you.  A QCD is pre-tax, meaning it does not appear in your taxable income, and therefore you don’t have to pay tax on that amount of the distribution.  

An RMD, however, is taxable income.  You can get this tax benefit even if you take the standard deduction.  And finally, by reducing your taxable income, it could result in a lower tax bracket.  

You’ll want to check with your financial advisor today to advise you on what strategy is right for you.
