Another way to support Wallkill Valley Land Trust’s mission is through a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA.
QCDs enable a direct transfer of funds from your retirement account (such as an IRA) to the Wallkill Valley Land Trust. The good news: QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for those of you who are 71+ years old or older, so it does not count as taxable income to you.
The maximum annual amount that can qualify for a QCD each year is $100,000. This applies to the sum of QCDs made to one or more charities in a calendar year. And partial donations of your RMDs result in only a partial tax break.
Again, in these examples, consult your tax or financial advisor if this makes sense for you.
