Have you taken your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) yet for 2018?
If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make a contribution to St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church directly from your Traditional IRA simply by instructing the plan administrator to make the transfer directly to St. Margaret’s as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). You are allowed to transfer up to $100,000 a year to the charities of your choice.
Your gift will be transferred directly to St. Margaret’s, will not be reported as taxable income and will count toward your minimal distribution requirements for 2018.
And, most important, your generous support will help sustain our work as a parish to Build the Body, Equip the Saints and Change the World!
To learn more about making a donation from your IRA, call Darlene Fletcher, at (760) 346-2697, ext. 125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
