Donating from Your IRA


If an individual has an IRA, at a certain age they must begin drawing a Required Minimum Distribution. Unfortunately, this distribution is taxed as ordinary income and increases tax liability.

However, turning that Required Minimum Distribution into a Qualified Charitable Distribution—by giving it directly to a qualified nonprofit such as St. Vincent de Paul—means one does not have to pay taxes on that charitable amount. So you can feed, clothe and shelter those in great need while reducing your tax burden.

By instructing your IRA account manager to contribute your Required Minimum Distribution directly from your retirement plan to St. Vincent de Paul, the income that would normally be taxable to you now becomes tax exempt, and reduces your adjusted gross income for tax purposes.


IRA holders aged 70½ or older who make a contribution directly from a traditional IRA to a qualified charity can donate up to $105,000 per individual without it being considered a taxable distribution. The qualified charitable distribution limit for married couples is $210,000.

This is the information your IRA administrator may need to complete an IRA gift:

Our Legal Name: St. Vincent de Paul Society District Council of Dayton, Ohio, Inc.
