How a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) Works

You are at least 70½ years old with IRA funds you no longer need

Make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your IRA

Your QCD goes directly to charity, supporting a cause you care about

If you are 72 years old or older, your QCD can count towards your required minimum distribution (RMD)!

Did You Know?

You can also support our mission for years to come. Simply name the PKD Foundation as a beneficiary of your IRA account, and the remaining assets (or a portion) of the account will be distributed to give hope, power research, advocate for PKD patients, and build a supportive community.

Sample Beneficiary Designation

Legal name: PKD Foundation
Address: 1001 E 101st Terrace, Suite 220, Kansas City, MO 64131
Federal Tax ID number: 43-1266906

Discover the Benefits of a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

Reduce your taxable income

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.

Fulfill your Required Minimum Distribution (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.

Help us #endPKD

When you make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA to the PKD Foundation, you will help us support and give hope to patients and lessen the threat that PKD poses to entire families.

“Giving from my IRA is easy. I don’t have to write the checks, the bank does, and they keep track of the donations I make. I feel good about helping the community and impacting the lives of others.”
