IRA Gifts

Make a Qualified Charitable Distribution from Your IRA

A qualified charitable distribution from an IRA is a good way for IRA owners age 70½ and over to support our work. It’s easy to do.

  • Instruct your IRA custodian to make a distribution directly to our organization.
  • Although there is no tax deduction, the distribution is excluded from your income for federal tax purposes—no tax is due!
  • Up to $100,000 of your gift (annual aggregate limit) qualifies for this favorable tax treatment.
  • Your gift makes an immediate impact.
  • A qualified charitable distribution from an IRA counts toward a donor’s required minimum distribution (RMD) if one is due. Federal legislation passed in 2019 and 2020 had an impact on required minimum distribution rules for IRAs. Contributions to your IRA after age 70½ can impact the amount eligible for a tax-free transfer.

CHM ESTATE AND GIFT PLANNING OPTIONS

Making a planned gift—whether by including a bequest to the Museum in your will or by naming CHM as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, or retirement fund—provides essential support for the Museum’s future. Planned gifts can offer significant tax advantages and in some cases generate lifetime income for you or your chosen beneficiary.
