The IRA Gift (QCD)

Your IRA can provide a tax-smart way to make an impact with Pratt Institute now. The Qualified Charitable Distribution or QCD (sometimes called an “IRA Charitable Rollover”) is a great way to make a tax-free gift now to Pratt Institute and satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), too.

How Do I Qualify?

The Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) offers multiple benefits for making gifts from your IRA.

  • You must be 70½ years or older at the time of the gift.
  • Gifts must go directly from your IRA to Pratt Institute.
  • Gifts cannot exceed $100,000 per donor per year.

Benefits of Qualified Charitable Distribution

  • If you don’t itemize your income tax deductions, a QCD offers all of the benefits of an itemized income tax charitable deduction
  • If you are age 72 or older and must take a Required Minimum Distribution RMD, a QCD gift can satisfy your RMD without increasing your income taxes.
  • You may direct your gift to a program or area of your choice.
  • It is a wonderful way to create an immediate impact on Pratt Institute.
