  • Charitable IRA Gift

    Your IRA can provide a tax-smart way to make an impact with Russell Sage College now. The Qualified Charitable Distribution or QCD (sometimes called an “IRA Charitable Rollover”) is a great way to make a tax-free gift now to Russell Sage College and satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), too.

    How Do I Qualify?

    The Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) offers multiple benefits for making gifts from your IRA.

    • You must be 70½ years or older at the time of the gift.
    • Gifts must go directly from your IRA to Russell Sage College.
    • For 2024, total QCD gifts cannot exceed $105,000 per donor.

    Benefits of Qualified Charitable Distribution

    • If you don’t itemize your income tax deductions, a QCD offers all of the benefits of an itemized income tax charitable deduction
    • If you are age 73 or older and must take a Required Minimum Distribution RMD, a QCD gift can satisfy your RMD without increasing your income taxes.
    • You may direct your gift to a program or area of your choice.
    • It is a wonderful way to create an immediate impact on Russell Sage College.

    How Can I Make an IRA Charitable Rollover?

    Contact your IRA administrator to request a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA to Sage.
