Discover the Benefits of a Charitable IRA Rollover

When you take funds from your IRA, they count as taxable income. But if you transfer them directly to charity, you reduce your taxable income while satisfying your RMD.

After you turn 72, you must distribute funds from your IRA. If you do not distribute the required minimum, you may be penalized, but a QCD allows a transfer up to $100,000 per individual or $200,000 per couple to satisfy your RMD.

When you designate your IRA or make a gift now through a Charitable IRA Rollover, you fuel hundreds of Fred Hutch laboratories and projects working to prevent, treat, and cure cancer and other diseases.

I give to Fred Hutch because I believe in their incredible scientists to find cures for cancer. I have chosen to give my annual gift from my IRA as an easy and tax-free way to support Fred Hutch.
