IRA Donation

Resilient Climate Solutions

Qualified Charitable Distribution

Through a qualified charitable distribution (or QCD, previously named the IRA charitable rollover) individuals 70 1/2 and older are eligible to contribute up to $100,000 directly to CET from their IRA, tax-free. 

Simply contact your plan administrator to initiate a transfer.  

How it works:  

The donor must be aged 70 1/2 or older on the date of the gift. 
Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free). 
The gift must be sent directly to NSC from your plan administrator.  
The gift counts toward your required minimum distribution if you have not already taken it for the calendar year. 
The gift can be any size up to $100,000 in the calendar year. 
The gift is excluded from your income – which sometimes allows for a lower income and Medicare tax bracket. 
The gift cannot be claimed as an income tax charitable deduction because it is not considered income.
