Do you love supporting the animals cared for by Michigan Humane but like to keep a close eye on your disposable income? Is saving animal lives and saving on your tax bill important to you?
If you are at least 70½ years old, you can take advantage of supporting Michigan Humane and receive tax benefits in return. Through your Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you can contribute up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity, such as Michigan Humane, without having to pay income taxes on the contribution. This gift option is commonly called an IRA charitable rollover, but it may also be referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD. Start your QCD gift HERE!
Benefits of making a QCD gift to Michigan Humane:
- Your gift will go to work right away to make a difference for homeless, neglected and abused animals in our community who urgently need your help, allowing you to see the difference your donation will have on the lives of at-risk animals.
- You will pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
- If you have not yet taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of that requirement.
Please feel free to contact Paula M. Rodriguez-Durant at (248)283-5633 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have. Because everyone’s tax situation is unique, we encourage you to consult with a tax professional if you have tax-related questions related to making a QCD gift.
