Frequently Asked Questions
What can we help you with?
Contact your IRA administrator to request a Qualified Charitable Distribution. If you are able to write checks directly from your IRA account, please make it out to “Anera” and send it to:
1111 14th Street NW #400
Washington, DC 20005
Note: For tax purposes, the date of the gift is the date the funds leave your IRA account (not the postmark on the envelope). It is important to allow sufficient time for the rollover check to clear to ensure that the funds are withdrawn during your preferred tax year.
There are many benefits to QCds, such as:
- Reducing your adjusted gross income and lowering your tax bracket, which will influence how much you pay in taxes.
- Avoiding the 25% penalty that is imposed if you don’t take your required minimum distribution (RMD).
- Not having to itemize deductions on your tax return to deduct a QCD from your taxable income.
