Make a Tax-Free Distribution from Your IRA Account 

Under the “Qualified Charitable Distribution” (QCD) rule, an IRA owner who is at least 70 ½ years of age can generally make a nontaxable distribution to a public charity (up to $100,000 in a calendar year). To qualify, the QCD check must be made directly to ChangeLab Solutions from the trustee of the IRA. As certain restrictions and requirements must be followed when making this type of gift, please consult with your tax advisor to discuss your donation.
