Donate from Your IRA

Donation Do's and Dues

Are you over age 70 1/2? Did you know that you can make charitable contributions from your IRA? This includes your membership dues or any donation you want to make to B'nai Israel Jewish Center (Tax ID# 94-6096583).

A donation from your IRA is called a Qualifying Charitable Distribution (QCD) which allows you to donate up to $100,000 per year directly to a qualified charity from your IRA and exclude it from income.

  • QCDs can enable you to give to charity and shield some or all of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from taxes.
  • QCDs require your contribution to go directly from your IRA to your chosen charitable organization.

Please consult your tax advisor to learn more. Go here to learn about ways to donate to BIJC.
